Admission tickets for adults are $5 and free for students. The former Miss Bluebonnet Days Queen, her Court and all new contestants vying for the title will perform a dance number to “Let’s Kill Saturday Night.” Contestants will be judged on a 3 minute informal interview, western and formal wear and an on stage impromptu question.
