Multi-colored lights shone on the Landmark Studio for the Arts’ stage to light the way for the contestants of the 2021 Sweet Heart Productions Christmas Pageant and Fairytale Christmas Pageant.
Fifty-four contestants strutted their glamorous gowns and dresses and their best smiles in front of the panel of judges vying for the top spots in divisions which included: Baby Miss, Tot Miss, Tiny Miss, Little Miss, Young Miss, Jr. Miss, Miss, MS, Mrs., Grandma, and yes, a Boys division.
The pageants are made possible by Gary Beamer, who has been producing high-quality pageants for over 20 years, and his loyal following of volunteers.
Gary also orchestrated the extremely successful Sutton Christmas Parade 2021, his first time doing so. This year’s Christmas Pageant was composed of the most entries ever.
In addition to the many division winners, too many to list here, special awards were given to supporting staff, and a Toy & Food drive took place on the same day, with toys going to children in foster care and the food to local food banks.
Some of the winners include: Evie Martin, Tot Miss Division Queen and Best Personality; Reese Mohr, Mini Grand Supreme and Overall Best Dressed; Kingsley Pennington, Fairytale Queen, Prettiest Smile, and Ultimate Grand Supreme; Violet Lemasters, Grand Supreme 0-4, and Diva of the Year; Meala Williams, Grand Supreme; Marleigh Williams, Overall Most Beautiful, Mini Supreme 5+, Best Overall Fairytale Queen 5+, and Best Smile for the Year; Lilith Helmick, Little Miss Merry Christmas; Emma Hare, Christmas Tree Supreme, Fan Favorite, Best Dressed, and Most Beautiful; Kendra Lambert, Miss Merry Christmas Queen 2021, Best Dressed Division, Most Beautiful, and Best Overall Attire.
Everyone was a winner. The pictures will be posted on my Facebook page, as well as Gary’s. Anyone wishing pictures can message me an email address with the person’s name and contestant number if possible, and I will be happy to email high-quality pictures suitable for printing.
Thank you, Gary Beamer, Sweet Heart Productions, and his assistants, the Landmark Studio for the Arts, and the many sponsors and contributors, for making this fabulous event possible.
