Seating available in front of Boardwalk Hall
Every year on the eve of the Miss America finale, thousands of visitors crowd the Atlantic City Boardwalk for the annual Miss America “Show Us Your Shoes” Parade. This magnificent event showcases the 52 stunning contestants and, of course, their shoes! This year, Parade producer Todd Marcocci and his talented team at Under the Sun Productions have created a spectacle for all to enjoy.
This beloved Atlantic City tradition is a moment in time when the contestants come together in a non-competitive atmosphere to celebrate the spirit of their home state through costumes and one-of-a-kind wearable art footwear. Parade spectators watch in amazement as each contestant displays hand-made shoe creations that range from Swarovski crystal-covered pumps, to diving flippers or military boots, to enhanced bed-time slippers.
This year, the parade will take place on Saturday, September 12
th at 5pm, rain or shine! The two-mile long parade stretches from New Jersey Avenue to Albany Avenue with a special performance viewing area in front of Boardwalk Hall. More than 100,000 people are expected to view this spectacular display along the famed Boardwalk!
The Miss America Organization is thrilled to once again host this highly-anticipated event for all the Miss America family and friends on the Boardwalk. While watching the parade, take the time to use #ShowUsYourShoes & #MissAmerica on every social media platform to share your parade experience with the world!
