Jr. Miss and Miss Pike County Fair Pageants Will Still Be Held
Organizers of the Pike County Fair Queen Pageant announced last week that there would not be a pageant at this year’s county fair due to a lack of interest.
According to Barbie Gamm, there were only three area young women who had completed the necessary paperwork to be a recognized contestant. The pageant rules stipulate that there must be five contestants in order for the pageant to be held.
Gamm said that while she was disappointed that there would not be a fair queen this year, she believes that there will be more interest next year.
