Celebrating 80 Years of Pageantry
Eighty years of Dowagiac pageantry will be celebrated Jan. 12 as this year’s 11 contestants take the stage at Dowagiac Middle School.
Pageant director Tracy Urbanski, office manager for Dowagiac’s Allergy, Asthma & Sinus Center, invites the public to join this year’s contestants as they step back in time to the roaring 1930s, when ballroom dances were the rage, and motion pictures depicted a time of elegance & sophistication.
