The Little Miss Plant City Pageant. By far the oddest thing I've ever experienced. My friend in Tampa was a judge. We arrived at 🕧 for lunch and instructions. At 🕑 the pre-interviews began. Groups of five girls at a time came in and the judges asked the girl in front of them a question. That ended at 🕔! Then the actual pageant began at 🕕. The not so good image is the first walk of all the pageant participants (8-10 year old girls). This was followed by quick introductions of each of the 47 girls, then loooong introductions about their families, and school, and hobbies, and activities, and pets... In between were introductions of the MCs and the judges and introductions of any past winners that were present and the 2017 Strawberry Festival court. Then it was narrowed to the top 10. The final 10 were asked one question - What does beauty mean to you? While we waited for the final results, we were treated to what last year's court did. It was 🕙 😮😮 when we finally got to leave. Fortunately both twins in the pageant were selected to be on the court and they were Latina. That would have been tough on the household otherwise. There was also a bake sale during the various intermissions. I got most of my food free as the quest of a judge. Note: until we got there we had no idea what was in store or that it would take all day. (......) #tampastrong ~
How would you answer the pre interview questions (and remember you have to say why for all) ...
1) Who is your favorite superhero?
2) What is your favorite book?
3) What is your favorite holiday?
4) If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be? (You'd be surprised by these answers.)
5) What is your favorite thing to do with your family?
6) If you had one superpower, what would it be? (Replacement for Q1)
7) If you were a butterfly and could fly anywhere in the world, where would you go? (Replacement for Q3 after everyone said Christmas.). #plantcityfl #tampa #tampafl #tampagram #igtampa #plantcity #littlemissplantcity #littlemissplantcity2017 #beautypageant #prettygirls #somuchpink #tampajuniors #plantcityjuniors #womensclubs #fotodc #igdc #igdcfamily #igersdc @gfwcplantcityjuniors
