A lack of interest washed out last year’s “Little Miss and Mr. Winter Carnival Pageant” in Iroquois Falls.  So organizers are taking another run at it.

Pageant chair Stephanie Delaurier says it’s open for girls and boys aged six to 12.

She says it’s not the traditional pageant with a talent competition or securing a sponsorship.

It does ask each contest what his or her favourite costume is, and why.

“We do the introduction portion and we do also have them take part in the spontaneous question,” says Delaurier.  “And we just make sure that the spontaneous questions are age appropriate.”

There’s also a practice run so the kids know what to expect.

“Just let me know that they’re interested in doing it and then I have a little registration package to send them by email.”
