NEWPORT-Cocke County A&I Fair, Tennessee's Champion AA Division for 2012, is gearing up for its 65th annual event August 12-17.

A highlight of this year's celebration will be the inaugural Cocke County Fair Prestigious Ms/Mrs Pageant on Friday, August 16, at 8 p.m. in the Little Theatre.

Unlike the traditional Fairest of the Fair and similar pageants for younger girls, the Prestigious Ms/Mrs Pageant is open only to women age 40 and above, according to Libbye Strange, fair manager.

"We're thrilled to host this event as a way to bring recognition and appreciation to the many women in Cocke County whose contributions in their churches, clubs, and communities make our home better," said Strange.

For more details, please see the Tuesday edition of the Newport Plain Talk.
