“The four girls competing this year are all extremely impressive and should be very proud of themselves. Any of them would make an excellent Miss Apple Peach and town representative,” said Stacy Clougherty, Miss Apple Peach 2000, who is organizing this year’s pageant. “We have a fun night planned starting from the opening number right until the moment we crown our new winner. We highly encourage the community to attend and show their support.”
The Miss Apple Peach pageant kicks off the festival weekend and the winner will receive a prize package and make appearances in town throughout the year including the parade on Sunday, September 8.
