Day #2 of the pageant and we are in full pageant mode! The contestants had breakfast courtesy of the Fellowship of Christian Cowboys and the Miss Rodeo New Mexico Pageant, Inc and the MGM Grand. They spent the day in their horsemanship interviews and rehearsing, we must have some really good dancers because the evening rehearsal was released early. The contestants and judges had lunch together today courtesy of Specialty Programs Insurors from Fairway KS.
The final event of the day was the Cowgirl Kick-Off Party with a “Vintage” theme. Red Wilk presented the contestants with a Black Hills Gold jewelry created for the 2011 contestants. McKenzie started the evening by taking us back in time with her vintage outfit. Contestants went in reverse order tonight and each one described their outfits. The girls took us through various decades and fashions. Some paid tribute to specific cowgirls and some to fashion trends. It was a vintage cowgirl fashion show. The audience had the opportunity to purchase tickets and fill the boot mugs of their favorite contestant’s outfits; the winner of the favorite vintage outfit was Miss Rodeo Kansas. Jose Perez Jr of JP Ultimate Entertainment finished the evening with some dancing music so everyone could get their two step in.
The girls will be up early tomorrow for horsemanship which is back at the Excalibur Arena. Don’t forget to check out all the latest pictures at www.shooterenterprises.com.
