The Miss Fabulous Pageant - The second annual Miss Fabulous Pageant will take place tomorrow at the Cookeville Community Center. The Miss Fabulous Pageant was started last year by Cookeville High School student Madison Hill as a way for girls with disabilities to shine and build self-confidence. 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.
