The Picayune Item
On Monday, Picayune Main Street, Inc. Manager Lauri Stockstill and Fall Street Fair Chair Ina Legg announced the debut of two new events for the 2013 Fall Street Fair.
“We will be incorporating a beauty pageant and a vocal competition in the Fall Street Fair line up,” said Legg.
Lauren Baker will direct the Miss Street Fair Pageant which will be held at the Moses Cook Masonic Lodge on West Canal.
"I am most excited about this pageant because it is a great opportunity to recognize young ladies across the southern part of our beautiful state and surrounding areas. The Lord blessed me with two boys, and after being in pageants all of my life, I have always wanted to remain a part of the pageant realm.
“This experience will provide a great resource of support through scholarships to further their educations for the older young ladies and help allow younger girls on-stage experience to have their personalities shine and beauty recognized," Baker said.
Contestants do not need to reside in Pearl River County to participate in the event. There are contestant categories for: Baby Miss Street Fair— 0 to 11 months; Tot Miss Street Fair — over 11 months to 2 years; Mini Miss Street Fair— 3 to 5 years; Little Miss Street Fair— 6 to 8 years; Junior Miss Street Fair— 9 to 12 years; Teen Miss Street Fair— 13 to 15 years and Miss 2013 Street Fair— 16 to 19 years of age.
Winners will be crowned and given a sash. Scholarships will be awarded for Miss 2013 Street Fair and also for: Best Interview, Most Poised, Most Photogenic, 2nd Alternate and 1st Alternate.
Pageant winners will be presented onstage Sunday and will also appear at the 2013 Picayune Main Street, Inc. Spring Street Fair.
In addition to the pageant, a vocal contest will be held. “Krumbs Krunked Up” is a vocal competition which will have three judges for age groups of: 4 to 8 years; 9 to 14 years and 15 to 24 years of age. There will be three different prize categories for each group and an overall People’s Choice Award. The winner of the People’s Choice Award will perform the following day onstage at the Street Fair.
