Leader file photo- The 63rd Annual Dixie Gem Peach Pageant will be held at 7 p.m. Saturday. Pictured are participants from a previous year.

Young ladies entered into the 63rd Dixie Gem Peach Pageant are gearing up to take the stage with the hope of bringing home the crown.

Joe Price, pageant director, said the theme for this year’s pageant is “Peaches and Jazz,” and for the first time in at least three years the pageant will be held during the Peach Festival.

“The Miss Louisiana pageant is usually held on Father’s Day weekend, and we were trying to compensate for that,” Price said. “We were expecting to draw a larger number of Miss contestants, but that pageant is now set for the last weekend in June.”
