The St. Paul Winter Carnival kicks off in just a few weeks, and now there’s a new Klondike Kate to help get things started. Kathy Rustin-Westphal of St. Paul Park was crowned the winner among six competitors at an event Wednesday night.
She had charm, beauty, and a man who’d done her wrong. On Wednesday night, six ladies competed for the title of Klondike Kate for this year’s St. Paul Winter Carnival. Judges rated their singing, crowd appeal, and how much they embodied the real-life dance-hall girl’s character.
