Sikeston's Cotton Carnival culminated with a massive parade on Saturday following with the selection of the Cotton Carnival queen. Hundreds of people lined Malone Avenue to watch the parade. Aria Parker, the daughter of Laird Ozmon and Tammie Robey of Oran, was named the 2011 Miss Cotton Carnival. First runner-up was Kelsey May, daughter of Patty May and Perry May of Dexter, and Brandi Emerson, the daughter of Robin Emerson and the late Joe Emerson of Oran, was second runner-up.
