The Rutabaga Queens Reign in Glory
Over the Kinetic Grand Championship
In 1973, “friend of Hobart” and general oddball Barbara Ludwig decided that the Kinetic Race needed a reigning monarch, and so declared herself “Rutabaga Queen.” Since that fateful day, there have been dozens of raucous royals who have made it their duty to follow the cardinal rule of Rutabaga-ing: Have FUN! … aaaaaalmost to the point of obnoxiousness.
The Rutabaga Ball was invented by a Queen, and is organized by the Queens, who are independent performing artists and volunteers ... this particular Kinetic tradition pre-dates Kinetic Universe by many decades. Kinetic Universe is grateful for the chance to host the Rutabaga Ball, and support this tradition for as long as it pleases the Queens.
It's in Queen Glo's fun loving heart to inspire adults to be playful and fabulous and to model for children how fun it is to grow up and continue to be Kidds!
