Please plan to bring a fun themed basket to be auctioned off! Family and spectators are welcomed and encouraged to attend, the more funds we are able to raise directly increases the amount of prizes we are able to award!
The contest consists of horsemanship, modeling, personal interview, speech, impromptu questions and appearance for the Miss, Princess and Little Miss Divisions. The Sweetheart will be softly judged to help them grow their love for pageants but the overall winner will be based on sales.
