Do you have a passion for bock beer and sausages? If so, you’re a viable contender for this year’s Little Kings Sausage Queen, a gender-neutral competition that distinguishes one outstanding individual as Bockfest royalty. Hopefuls are pitted against each other during four preliminary rounds held at sponsoring local saloons, the first of which takes place at Washington Platform. Anyone 21 and up can enter on the spot; contestants will be asked to show off their personalities, talents, sausage-carrying abilities and diva tendencies. Winners will advance to the finals, held 7:30 p.m. March 5 at Bockfest Hall (1619 Moore St.). The person crowned Sausage Queen will help lead the Bockfest parade by carrying a symbolic tray of Bockwurst sausages.
9 p.m. Thursday. Free to participate. Washington Platform, 1000 Elm St., Downtown, bockfest.com.
