Eugene’s 35th and newest SLUG Queen is Queen Santa Frida Babosita, the patron slug of arts and culture. She’s also known as Mija Andrade. She talks with KLCC’s Eric Alan about her goals as the city’s unofficial ambassador, including how it relates to her passion for the arts and her Mexican heritage.

City of Eugene

A storied Eugene tradition is coming back with familiar themes this weekend. The “Eug” Parade is part of Eugene Sunday Streets downtown.

Eugene’s new S.L.U.G. Queen, Daniel Borson—a.k.a. Queen Professor Bulbus Slimbledore—speaks with Eric Alan about wizardry, environmental education, and the centrality of a downtown celebration.
