Allie Brooks crowned 2018 Daffodil Queen


The Rialto Theater rang with cheers the evening of March 31 when Lincoln High School senior Allie Brooks was crowned as the 2018 Daffodil Queen. Competing with 23 princesses from Pierce County, Brooks – who is a model student, ASB president and something to be reckoned with on the soccer field – will join her royal court on the morning of Saturday, April 7 when the 85th annual Daffodil Parade kicks off in downtown Tacoma at 10:15 a.m. From there the route travels to Puyallup (12:45 p.m.), Sumner (2:30 p.m.) and Orting (5 p.m.). The parade consists of more than 180 entries, including floats, bands, marching and mounted units. Linking one generation to another in tradition, floats are decorated with thousands of fresh-cut daffodils, just like the daffodil flowers that have grown in the Puyallup Valley since more than 80 years ago.
