If you grew up prior to the 1980s, you probably remember the one and only Bert Parks crooning “There she is, Miss America” as he crowned a lucky winner among the ladies vying for the title. You may have even dreamed of winning that crown yourself.
Recently at AlmaVia of Camarillo, 12 lovely ladies participated in a “Grandmas in Tiaras” fashion show and talent competition. The prizes? A sparkling tiara and a relaxing spa day.
The day included several winners, including Colleen Robinson as Miss Gardens. Mary Jo Carson won as Miss AlmaVia, and Chris Siegfried took home the Miss Glam-Ma crown for her beautiful, handmade quilt.
As you can see in the photos, all of the contestants were lovely, and the audience and participants alike had a fantastic time. The Grandmas in Tiaras event may not have been in Atlantic City — as the famous song says — but the participants were definitely ideal!
