Every year in August, just before the Carnation Festival, a Pageant is held. The primary purpose of the pageant is to reveal the beauty and knowledge of one lucky young adult female from the area. The contestants must be area natives and be in their senior year of high school or college years. The chosen queen and their court then embarks on a "journey of a lifetime" for one year, learning about Alliance, OH and all it has to offer. The finalists and queen were just named to the court for the year 2013 on August 11th.
