2010 Lights of the Delta &  Outstanding Teen Pageants to be held Friday & Saturday, November 27th & 28th, 2009.  Entry Information is coming Soon!!




Here is the tentative schedule of events for our pageant.  Remember these are not set in stone and may be altered.  Any changes will be posted here so check back often.

Saturday, November 19th, 2008:  ENTRY DEADLINE:  We absolutely must have all entry materials in our hands by this date so we can plan the pageants and get the program to the printer.  An extension can be granted only by the Executive Director.  However, competition order is set in reverse order of entries received.  The last one received will be first in competition order and first received will be last in competition order.  That is why you don't have to wait on your CMN confirmation to get your materials in to us.  CMN confirmation will be checked after rehearsal.

Our theme will be "Winter Wonderland" and we will be decorating with snowmen and snowflakes.

Friday, November 28th, 2008:  REHEARSAL:  Starts at 4:00 at Blytheville High School, Blytheville.  A light supper snack will be available for you and your parent.  No pageant clothes are needed for rehearsal but be sure to bring heels, accompaniment CD and any props you might need for your talent.  We will be practicing all phases of competition.

SPECIAL EVENT:  All contestants are to bring to rehearsal a Christmas Tree Ornament they have decorated with their name, picture, anything!  The ornament will be placed on the Lights of the Delta Pageant Tree there in the lobby of the high school auditorium.  you will enjoy seeing the ornaments that past contestants have brought.

SPECIAL EVENT:  Immediately after rehearsal, contestants will board a bus for a special tour of the Lights of the Delta Festival.  If weather permits, we plan to have you take a hayride through the display, so bring a blanket, coat, hat, gloves, etc.  We will have photos with Santa, hot chocolate & popcorn.  Only contestants and queens will be invited to this event; however, parents are encouraged to carpool and visit the display.  It is the largest lighting display in the Mid-South with over 40 major motion displays.  The cost is $10 per carload, so make some new friends and memories at the Lights!  It is a great way to get you in the mood for Christmas.

Saturday, November 29th, 2008:  INTERVIEWS:  These will take place at the Blytheville Holiday Inn beginning at 9 a.m.  (Will be later, if we do not split the pageant)  your exact time will be emailed or given to you at rehearsal.  Wear suit, pantsuit, Sunday dress and heels.  Remember that we no longer have an opening statement but you will be allowed 30 seconds for a closing statement.

PAGEANT:  If we need to split the pageant, due to total number of Teen and Miss contestants, the afternoon session will begin at 2:00 p.m.  Opening Outfit will be Lights T-shirt, as described above.  We will decide how to split the pageant at a later date but for example:  Teens might compete in Talent and Miss might compete in Swimsuit and Gown and Question.  That will be announced at rehearsal.

**********If we do not have part of the pageant in the afternoon, we won't start interviews until later.**********

PAGEANT:  The pageant will be gin at 7:00 p.m.  Contestants will compete in what they did not do in the afternoon, if we split the pageant.  Otherwise, we would do all of the pageant that night.  After the pageant, there will be a reception for the new queens, former queens, judges, and everyone is invited to this.  It will be at the Holiday Inn or the high school.  We will announce the location during rehearsal.

TICKETS:  Tickets for each show will be $10 for adults and $5 for children or students.  A combination ticket for both shows (if we split the pageant) will be offered at $15 for adults and $8 for children.  The will be available at rehearsal or at the door.
