ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — "Show us your shoes!"
It's a refrain that hasn't been heard much around Atlantic City, N.J., lately. That changes Saturday evening, when the 53 contestants in the Miss America pageant bring back one of the competition's signature traditions: a parade down the seaside resort's boardwalk.
Some contestants will sport footwear that reflects their state. Miss Florida's shoes depict alligators, Miss Indiana's have basketballs and hoops, Miss New Jersey will sport sea shells and Miss Arizona's have a cactus.
Others are taking a different approach. Miss South Dakota has opted for metal-studded black leather boots.
The pageant is back in Atlantic City after six years in Las Vegas. The winner will be crowned during Sunday night's nationally televised broadcast.
