Pageant Rescheduled

The Miss Merry Christmas Pageant, sponsored by the DeQuincy Chamber, that was scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 21, has been postponed due to a conflict.

The pageant has been rescheduled as Miss Valentine Pageant and is set for Feb. 6, 2021, at the Heritage Place Hotel. Those crowned Queen will be honored at the Annual Chamber of Commerce Banquet in March. Also they will be asked to ride in local parades.

We are sorry for the inconvenience but it is beyond our control.

Entry forms for the Miss Valentine Pageant will become available in January. More information and details will be made public in the newspaper and on Facebook.
