At the event, the Miss Pequot Lakes contestants will be judged on presences in both casualwear and formalwear, as well as to their answers to an impromptu question and talent that each will perform.

The Miss Pequot Lakes candidates and escorts will perform an opening number to “Time of Our Lives."
