Fifty three beautiful and independent Miss America contestants prepare for their journey to the 2014 Miss America Competition that will commence with Preliminary Competitions on Tuesday, September 10, Wednesday, September 11 and Thursday, September 12.
The culmination of their efforts will lead them to compete in the historic Atlantic City Boardwalk Hall final night of Competition airing on ABC Sunday, September 15th at 9:00 PM ET.
The contestants were invited to The City of Philadelphia prior to the start of their intense week of competition to experience the rich history of the Liberty Bell which rang from the tower of Independence Hall summoning the citizens of Philadelphia to hear the first public reading of the Declaration of Independence, thereby commencing the Freedoms of America.
After seeing the Liberty Bell, the Contestants were invited to Citizens Bank Park to watch the Philadelphia Phillies take on the Atlanta Braves. The Miss America contestants were introduced on the field and lined up around the diamond, as Miss America 2013 Mallory Hagan arrived at Home Plate!
Enjoy the spirit of Americana, on Sunday, September 15th live from Atlantic City at Boardwalk Hall on ABC!
