The Miss Fabulous Pageant - The second annual Miss Fabulous Pageant will take place tomorrow at the Cookeville Community Center.

This year, 50 girls are participating in the pageant with nearly 30 male escorts. The pageant begins at 10 a.m. Participants are asked to donate supplies for the Cookeville Animal Shelter, and those who are attending are asked to pay $5.
