Jacksonian Days Kicks-off With a Beauty Pageant

By Lauren Forsythe | 

The annual Allen County Jacksonian Days kicked off today.

The week-long festival started with the Jacksonian Beauty Pageant.

Boys and girls from babies to young adults put on their best faces for the pageant Sunday afternoon.

Pageant director Diane Towe says the pageant has been a town tradition for years.

"This year and last year the Jacksonian Pageant has been the kick-off for the Jacksonian Festival. In the past it was the final event, but we decided to put if as the kick-off so that Miss Jacksonian and the other winners in each age group could go out to the street fair and be seen and help represent Scottsville," Towe says.

Jacksonian Days ends this Saturday.
