Nearly 50 contestants from throughout the state will be at various Downtown Lakeland businesses for autographs and photo opportunities.
My Office & More, located at 122. E. Main St., will host a free panel discussion at 11:30 a.m. with Miss Tampa Olivia Butler, Miss Orange County Lauren Nielsen, and Miss Central Florida Abigail Cunnane about what it takes to be a pageant contestant and what life is like as a title holder.
A list of where each contestant will be during the Meet & Greet is available on the Downtown Lakeland Partnership website.
The Miss Florida Pageant preliminaries and finals events are June 27 through July 1 at the RP Funding Center. The winner will go on to compete in the Miss America Competition in Atlantic City on Sept. 10.
The RP Funding Center, formerly The Lakeland Center, is at 701 Lime St. in Lakeland.
