Pageant kicks off festivities at Shake the Lake July 4th celebration

July 4th, 2016

Spring City, TN —  It was hot and humid but a good size crowd braved the heat at Shake the Lake in Spring City on Monday at Veterans Park.  The Mr and Mrs Firecracker attendance was up this year with over 100 participants.  The pageant attire was quite patriotic and the kids were very cute, even though some were a little less than dry as the humidity was very high.  Still the crowd for pageant was good and support for the kids was outstanding.

Now during the pageant and throughout the day there was plenty to do, with lots of food available and vendors offering other services through out the day.  Head judge for the pageant was Kaitlyn Couch, reigning Rhea County Fairest of the Fair and former Miss Spring City.  Also judging was Abby Sattler, former 2015 Junior Miss Spring City. who is junior at Rhea County High School.  The third judge was Delaney Smith, the 2017 Distinguished Young Woman, who will be a senior at Rhea County High School this year.

Also helping with the pageant were several pageant winners from both the 2016 Spring City and Strawberry Pageants this last year.  Those helping with the pageant were Taylor McCoy, 2016 Spring City Young Miss, 2016 Spring City Junior Miss Keyli Hickey, 2016 Strawberry Festival Strawberry Queen Kaitlyn Pendleton, 2016 Junior Miss Tennessee Strawberry Kelie Jasso and Bailey McCoy, former Young Miss Spring City and Little Miss Spring City.
