The tradition of the famous Miss America Parade will return to Atlantic City’s boardwalk on September 14, 2013
The Miss America Organization announced today the official start of their Show Us Your Shoes Parade planning.
Preparations are now underway for the return of this spectacular event that will feature the current Miss America 2013 Mallory Hagan on a grand float, plus the 53 Miss America Contestants driven in convertibles.
The Parade will also include beloved Miss Americas throughout the decades, along with live entertainment and special performances.
This year, The Parade will be produced by two time EMMY Award winning producer John M Best and his team from JM Best Entertainment and Under the Sun Productions. The team successfully produces The National Cherry Blossom Festival Parade in D.C., The National Memorial & July 4th Parades in D.C., The Chicago Magnificent Mile Lights Festival and the beloved 6ABC Philadelphia Thanksgiving Day Parade.
JM Best Entertainment along with the Parade Committee is currently accepting applications for the Miss America Show Us Your Shoes Parade.
Please go to http://www.missamerica.org/news/parade.aspx for information and applications to participate. Corporations, community groups, marching bands, and other parade groups are invited to complete and submit an application for consideration.
The Parade form deadline is June 15, 2013.
The Parade will be a two hour event on the two mile long famed Atlantic City Boardwalk. The Parade will be a celebration that will lead into the final night of the Miss America 2014 Competition live on ABC in Atlantic City in the historic Boardwalk Hall on Sunday, September 15, 2013.
Tickets will go on sale later this spring for both events. Please visit our website for the announcements.
