Free Fair Pageant to celebrate 10 years

Contestants vie for county fair queen title

DUNCAN — Editor's note: Due to amount of contestants, their photos are available in a photo slideshow here.

The number of contestants in the 10th annual Stephens County Free Fair Pageant is a far cry from the number they started out with.

In its first year, there were only three contestants and only a Miss category. For the pageant’s 10-year anniversary set for 1 p.m. Aug. 4, at the Stephens County Fair & Expo Center, there are 36 contestants in five different age groups.  

These groups include Petite Miss, Pre-K to 1st grade; Little Miss, 2nd and 3rd grades; Mini Miss, 4th and 5th grades; Junior Miss, 6th to 8th grades; and Miss, 9th to 12th grades.

Pageant competitions will include interviews from the judges, casual wear, party wear and there is an optional talent competition. Tickets are $2 at the door. Overall, the Miss winner will be the Miss Stephens County Free Fair Queen, though all queen winners from all divisions will serve as ambassadors during the Stephens County Free Fair which will be Aug. 22-25.

This year, the area youth who are participating for a chance to be an ambassador are:

Poll

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
