First ‘Little Miss/Mr. Evangola Holiday Pageant’ set for Nov. 16

ANGOLA – The directors of the Evangola Tomato Festival pageant are pleased to announce the first annual Little Miss/Mr. Evangola Holiday Pageant will take place in Angola on Nov. 16.

Registrations are currently being accepted and the pageant committee will accept both girls and boys ages newborn to 19. This pageant will be a fantastic way to kick off the upcoming holiday season.

Events will consist of “beauty” wear and holiday wear as well as an optional talent and photo event. Contestants will also be treated to a holiday party. Prizes for this pageant include Christmas-themed crowns and trophies, flowers, toys and fashion prizes, as well as special surprises that will be revealed at the pageant. No one will leave empty handed – regardless of how contestants place; everyone is guaranteed a beautiful crown, a stocking of goodies and a Christmas gift just for doing his or her best. Those who go on to win titles will receive much more than that.

This pageant is a “natural” event and will have strict rules on what is allowed for makeup and attire.

This is a one-day event and pageant organizers will be taking registrations until Nov. 1. To request a registration form, call 467-2541 and speak to Tami or send an email to evangolapageant@yahoo.com. The cost to compete is $60 for the “grand package,” which includes entry into the beauty and holiday wear categories, as well as side awards, directors’ choice fun awards, and holiday party admittance for each contestant and his or her parent or guardian. Additional tickets may be purchased.
