Vulcanus Rex reigns from Hudson
It was the summer of 1995, Andrea Johnson was a candidate for the North Hudson Pepper Fest court. Little did her parents, Dave and Tami, realize that it was a pivotal moment in their lives as well. Andrea earned a spot on the court as one of the princesses, which meant Dave and Tami would spend the next 12 months on the road nearly every weekend, assisting with the float. During this time, the Johnsons were introduced to the St. Paul Winter Carnival Royalty and their rivals the Vulcans.
