It’s a fashionable weekend this weekend as the Miss Sacramento County Beauty Pageant Finals and the Miss Sacramento County Teen Pageant take place on Sunday, Sept. 28 at Cosumnes River College’s Performing Arts Center. Also happening is the Queens vs. Celebrities Bowling Tournament, a bowling event scheduled on Saturday, Sept. 27 in coordination with the pageant and hosted by Justin Bird (Bravo TV’s “The Millionaire Matchmaker”) at Pins N Strikes from 6pm-9pm.
At the bowling tournament, Miss Sacramento County Beauty contestants will bowl against other teams that include a celebrity group.

Along with the festivities, a Backpacks and School Supply Drive, designed to encourage youth to pursue education and to stay in school, will be taking place in an effort to give back to the community. People are asked to bring backpacks and school supply donations to the tournament.

The Miss Sacramento County and Miss Sacramento County Teen serve as the official preliminary to the Miss California USA and Miss California Teen USA Pageants. Contestants will be judged in five categories; personal interview, talent, evening wear, swim wear and by an onstage question. Contestants will have plenty of family and friend support but also need community support as they compete for the title.
