Lovely young ladies from 6 months to 18 years gathered this week to earn their spot in an event steeped in tradition — the Miss Good Ole Days Pageant, which takes place every year as part of the annual Good Ole Days BBQ Cook-Off & Festival.

The pageant is set for Aug. 14 and promises to be an action-packed event with more than 27 contestants competing in various categories; Baby Miss, ages 6 months to 2 years; Tiny Miss, ages 3 to 6 years; Little Miss, ages 7 to 10 years; Junior Miss, ages 11 to 14 years; and Miss, ages 15 to 18 years. In honor of the 50th anniversary, the 2021 crowned Miss Good Ole Days will receive a $500 college scholarship.
