New royalty has been chosen for the Wausau Possum Festival. From a field of truly ghastly contestants, two rose to the top to take home the prestigious title Possum King and Possum Queen on Friday at the Dalton Carter Recreation Center in Wausau on Friday, Aug. 2.

Saturday, Aug. 3, was the annual Fun Day event, which featured music, food, a parade and the annual Possum Auction. Gov. Rick Scott was there to enjoy the festivities and to try his hand at shaking a possum.
