The newest member of the Kinetic Grand Championship court was crowned Rutabaga Queen during the Rutabaga Ball on Saturday night at Redwood Raks Dance Studio in Arcata. Former queens showed up in force and in gilded crowns to welcome 2015 queen Gloria Kiddnetica into their ranks. In case you were trapped in the garage welding your contraption for the big race coming up, photographer Mark McKenna was there to capture the regal shenanigans.
