Barnesville is only 29 days away from the Miss Buggy Days Beauty Pageant.’Last year the pageant was a huge success with close to 120 contestants of all ages,’ said chamber president Emily Rowland. ‘This year the beauty pageant committee has elected to continue hosting the pageant with even more titles. This will expand the pageant into an all-day event and allow extra room for contestants and attendees.’Admission is $5 per person with ages 5 and under free, as is one parent with each contestant. There will be ample parking.During the Buggy Days pageant there is an opportunity to advertise a business. This year the pageant will be held at the Lamar County Fine Arts Center on Sept. 14.’We’ll be presenting a continuous slide show of the beauty pageant sponsors,’ said Rowland. ‘The slide show will potentially have 700-plus viewers. If you don’t have an ad or logo ready, the Chamber of Commerce will be glad to create one for you. All we need is the completed form, the appropriate payment and your logo, ad or business card to get started.’There are other opportunities to sponsor the pageant that will include special sponsorship seating, stage announcements, program advertisements and personalized titles. For instance, the Little Miss Buggy Days title and crown could be sponsored by a business and be announced as so on stage, inside of the program, and on the slideshow. These extra opportunities and packages cost from $50-$250.Those interested in any of these opportunities, sponsorship packages or to sign up for the pageant itself can contact the Chamber of Commerce for information.Sponsorships need to be paid by Aug. 30.
