Carolina International Pageants
Joy Pfister, Miss & Teen International Director of the Year and Director of the North Carolina International Pageants, added the South Carolina International Pageants to her pageantry juggernaut this year and it went off in high style.
I arrived on Friday afternoon in time to see the orientation at the fabulous Embassy Suites in Greensboro, North Carolina. It was great to reacquaint and catch up with old friends and connect with new ones. A light, yet businesslike, orientation progressed as I set up for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Mixer. The Mixer started right on time and we went live broadcasting interviews with nearly every contestant…in fact, I think I somehow interviewed the same young lady twice at one point! Ladies were getting pictures taken at the Rock ‘n’ Roll Mixer wall as well and having a high time of it. Star Path Images took many photos, which should be available soon at his website to order. (
The interviews went out live and we will be repackaging them for use in an upcoming show. Yes, that means you can listen to nearly every contestant and see what you think of their interviewing skills! Not to mention their ability to deal with this goofy interviewer…oh, well. I want to thank Michaela Blanton, in particular, for helping keep the live show orderly and popping!!!
That evening, rehearsals began under the guidance of “The Force” Natasha Williams. This rehearsal time would end up really paying off…because the opening number was absolutely wonderful!
Interviews were held on Saturday morning at the Embassy, where many of the local young men competing in a LaCrosse game in town found reasons to visit the lobby frequently. Funny how that happens. After interviews, we went off to the pageant venue for more rehearsals culminating in a wonderful show. Key to getting all those contestants safely conveyed to the venue was Jennifer Phillips, who helped out the pageant throughout the event.
As I mentioned the opening number rocked and started when a beautiful pink (yes, pink!) Harley Davidson motorcycle made its way across the stage! You’ll see the cycle in many of the photos from the event…it was a great visual element in an event that was already eye candy!
It was a great pageant and I wish to thank director Joy Pfister and everyone on the staff that I mentioned or didn’t here (the whole list is in the program and Joy would be happy to sell you one at here website Let’s get on to the results.
