2017 Hernando Desoto Queens Court

Meet Eryn LaLonde one of ten women vying for the title of De Soto Queen or Princess

For over 75 years, the De Soto Heritage Festival has celebrated the intellect and talent of a select group of special young women from the community by naming them to the De Soto Queen’s Court, a scholarship program.

Candidates are recommended by the community and then the Hernando De Soto Historical Society makes its choices on the basis of character, appearance, scholastic ability, high morals, and personality.

The De Soto Queen’s Court serves as goodwill ambassadors for the Hernando De Soto Historical Society and Manatee County through the following spring.
