Miss America’s Outstanding Teen Elizabeth Fechtel traveled to Washington, D.C., last week to celebrate the National Cherry Blossom Festival. Elizabeth was joined by Miss America 2012 Laura Kaeppeler and several other MAO and MAOTeen titleholders for the weekend-long celebration.
During her stay in D.C., Elizabeth appeared on ABC’s “Let’s Talk Live” and danced to “God Bless America,” which Laura sang in the National Cherry Blossom Festival Parade. Elizabeth also had the opportunity to visit the famous bakery, D.C. Cupcakes, and to attend the Washington Ballet at Kennedy Center’s performance of “Alice in Wonderland.”
More wonderful photo opportunities with Katie Couric, Marie Osmond and Alex Trebek can be seen on Elizabeth’s blog or by following MAOTeen on Facebook.
