Noreen and her friend Marcia compete to be Queen of the Winter Carnival and Noreen is chosen. Noreen is engaged to Larry, but when he asks her to accelerate their wedding date and move with him to San Diego, she is conflicted because that would mean she’d leave town before being crowned. Neither will give in and Larry breaks their engagement. At the last minute, Noreen realizes her love for Larry is more important than being Queen, and she asks that Marcia be given the crown.
