Miss Apple Peach Pageant volunteers are hosting an information night to recruit contestants for the 2017 pageant, which will be held on Sept. 8. The information night will be held 7-8 p.m. Tuesday, July 11, at the Acushnet Police Department.

The Apple Peach pageant kicks off the festival weekend and the winner will receive a prize package and make appearances throughout the year. Any interested girls must reside in Acushnet, be enrolled in high school (grades 9-12) as of September 2017 and commit to raising a minimum of $30 to benefit the Lakeville Old Colony Acushnet Lions Club.

The pageant format includes casual wear, formal wear and two on-stage questions. No previous dance, pageant or performing experience is required.

Register to reserve your spot by emailing pageant02743@gmail.com or calling Holly Raposa at (508) 742-7905. Girls who are interested in the pageant but cannot attend an information night are encouraged to “Like” the Miss Apple Peach Pageant on Facebook for information on the upcoming pageant. https://www.facebook.com/MissApplePeachPageant/
