Vicksburg is home to the Miss Mississippi Pageant and the Miss Mississippi Outstanding Teen Pageant and each year winners of preliminary competitions travel to the River City in hopes of winning the coveted state title, and on Nov. 8 and 9, 12 of those preliminary competitions will be held in the town where queens are crowned.
“We are having 12 pageants in two days,” said Tammy Wells, who will be serving as the directors for all twelve of the preliminary pageants.
“At 7 p.m. on Nov. 8, Miss Vicksburg, Miss Delta Blues, Miss Pride of the South and their teen sister crowns will be crowned,” Wells said. The theme for the show is Vogue-High Fashion.
“This means for the opening number you can dress in what you think a supermodel would wear. You can be outrageous with this and you will not be judged,” said Wells.
“The music will be fast and fun and you can have gloves, hats, sunglasses and as many accessories as you would like,” she said.
“At 2 p.m. on Nov. 9, we will turn around and give out six more crowns,” Wells said. They will include Miss North Central Mississippi, Miss Red Carpet City, Miss Belle of the Bayou and their teen sister crowns.
“This is going to be the best day of your life,” will be the theme and contestants should wear jeans a white shirt and any kind of shoes, said Wells.
Contestants competing in the Miss Mississippi preliminary competitions are required to make $100 donation to the Children’s Miracle network and for the teen contestants a $100 sponsorship fee is required.
