It was a midday of glamour as the annual Clay Golden Apple Festival Children’s Pageant took place at the Clay High School auditorium. Girls came from all over to compete for the trophies. It was some of the stiffest competition that ever graced the stage. The pageant seemed to go off without a hitch. Pageant directors Elizabeth Taylor and Leslie Tucker put together a great pageant along with the inspiration of festival director Terry Allen. All seemed to have a good time, win or lose.
Congratulations to the new Pageant winners. I’m sure that I speak for everyone in saying that this pageant would not have been possible without the help of all those who were behind the scenes getting everything ready so it would go off perfectly. To those, a big thank you is appropriate. They made it all come together for some young ladies whose dream is to one day be a queen. Once again, congratulations to the new Clay Golden Delicious Festival royalty.
