MAYVILLE — The 2017 Presidents Day Weekend Winter Festival, honored Mayville residents Ben and Amy Webb as this year’s festival king and queen.

Festival Committee members Tom and Debbie Przepiora of Mayville made the presentation at the Festival and their granddaughter, Olivia Przepiora, was a part of the royal court as this year’s Festival Princess.

“One of the great things about this community is that there are individuals, families, businesses and couples who exemplify the spirit that a village like this represents,” Tom and Debbie Przepiora said. “And this year’s king and queen are part of a family and business who are the very essence of what Mayville is about. Tradition, tourism, entrepreneurial spirit, family, community and respect for the things that make this village great are the attributes that contributed to their unanimous selection this year. She is a mother, community activist, businesswoman and partner. He is one of the hardest working members of a family who has truly made Mayville great. That sort of dedication to the past, present, and future of the village of Mayville is why the gateway to Chautauqua Lake will continue to thrive. Please join me in honoring this year’s king and queen.”
