Miss New Jersey Pageant Parade in O.C.

What Is It: The 80th annual Miss New Jersey Pageant starts with a parade tonight on the Boardwalk in Ocean City.

What To Expect: Contestants will be dressed for this year's theme of "villains down the venue." During this event, you will find Cat Woman, the Big Bad Wolf and Bonnie and Clyde. Miss Atlantic County Lindsey Giannini will portray the Witch of the West from the "Wizard of Oz." Miss Cape May County Lauren Fogarty, in a nod to Atlantic City history, will dress up as the tax collector from Monopoly. Leading the parade will be the reigning Miss New Jersey Lindsey Petrosh. Miss Ocean City Devon Vanderslice will be featured in the beach patrol display. There will be floats and many other units.
