“There are no more tickets available online, Edris said, “If anyone wants a ticket for Saturday they will need to call the pageant office and get on a waiting list.”

Individual tickets for the Wednesday, Thursday and Friday preliminary competitions, however, are still available, and these can be found online or by calling the Miss Mississippi Pageant Office.

The cost of Wednesday and Thursday’s preliminary competitions are $30 and the cost of Friday’s preliminary competition is $40.

All competitions will be held at the Vicksburg Convention Center, 1600 Mulberry St.

Last year, tickets for the Miss Mississippi Pageant Competition were sold out well before the event, and Edris said, this was probably due in part to it being the 60th Anniversary of the pageant being held in the River City.

“Also, last year we had a large number of former Miss Mississippi’s returning,” Edris said, adding this helped garner early ticket sales.

The 2018 Miss Mississippi Pageant will have 49 competitors vying for the tittle with two of whom are locals — Miss Desoto County Colby Brumfield and Miss Hinds Community College Charity Lockridge.

In addition to the competitions, there will be several events held throughout the week to meet and greet the contestants.

At 7 p.m., Monday, June 18, the Miss Mississippi Parade will be held along Washington Street, and an autograph party will follow at the Outlets at Vicksburg.

Autograph-signings will also be held from 10 to11:30 a.m. Wednesday at George Carr, 2950 S. Frontage Road and from 10:30 a.m. to noon Thursday along Washington Street in downtown Vicksburg.
