NEWPORT- What would the Newport Harvest Street Festival
be without a Saturday filled with beauty pageants?
For many years the ladies of Alpha Eta Chapter, Epsilon
Sigma Alpha have hosted the Newport Harvest Street Festival Beauty Pageants for
children and young adults up to 21 years old. What many people don't know is that our local Alpha Eta
Chapter takes great pride and puts in a lot of hard work to make sure that
these pageants take place during the annual street festival.
"In addition to the pageants for the small children, we
now have a scholarship pageant for the 16-21 year old age group" said Valerie
Fancher, director of the Chamber of Commerce. "2012 will be the second year
that we are partnering with Aaron's of Newport. The local Aaron's generously
grants a $250 scholarship to the Miss Harvest Street Festival winner and also
gives her a $500 shopping spree at the Newport Aaron's."
