Miss America has found a new home in Las Vegas at Planet Hollywood, moving from Atlantic City in 2006. This year's pageant will be held in the resort's Theater for the Performing Arts, with the competitions running each night beginning Tuesday, January 20, 2009. The finals will be broadcast on Saturday the 24th on TLC.
The contestants arrived in Las Vegas late last week. They have been making some appearances around town, including the opening of the new fountain in the Miracle Mile shops at Planet Hollywood, formerly the Desert Passage. The fountains go through a series of colors and fog and can shoot up nearly 5 stories high, all part of the new look and rebranding of the property.
This past Saturday, the lovely young ladies made an appearance at the Fashion Show Mall on the Las Vegas Strip. As you can see, it stands in the shadows of the pageant owner's Trump Las Vegas. The contestants appeared from the stage and runway that emerges from the floor of The Great Hall. After each was announced, they returned as a group to the runway as the stage was retracted. Then they were all available for a meet-and-greet and autograph signing.
