2022 Bristol Mum Festival Welcomes Miss Mum Pageant Back On Friday, September 23rd! Moves to New Location!
Bristol, CT. – The Mum Festival which has been Bristol’s fall marquee community-focused event for almost 60 years, is proud to announce the return of the celebrated Miss Chrysanthemum Pageant on Friday evening, September 23rd.
As the Festival moves back to Memorial Boulevard this year, the Bristol Exchange Club and the Mum Festival Committee are so excited that the event will take place on the first night of the Mum Festival and will be held in the newly revamped Rockwell Theater in the middle of all the action at the new Memorial Boulevard Intradistrict Arts Magnet School. This year’s pageant will consist of an opening number, choreographed by Nutmeg Performing Arts Studio, an onstage introduction, as well as age-appropriate questions to each of the candidates. There will also be performances by current Miss Chrysanthemum, Camryn Patton and Petite Miss Chrysanthemum, Kyla McQuiggan. Two new titles will be awarded: 2022 Miss Chrysanthemum and 2022 Little Miss Chrysanthemum.
Under the direction of Miss Mum Pageant Chairperson Brianna Longo, who served as Miss Mum in 1999, the Miss Chrysanthemum Pageant encourages self-confidence, creative accomplishment, community service, and positive role-modeling among young women within the Bristol community.
“The Miss Mum Pageant is truly a celebration of the young ladies and future leaders in Bristol,” said Miss Mum Chairperson, Brianna Longo. “We are especially excited that this year’s event will be held at the heart of the festival, in the new auditorium that so many Miss Chrysanthemum’s had the honor of competing in. We are also honored to be part of the opening ceremonies of the Mum Festival.”
The Mum Festival will be held on September 23rd -25th at 70 Memorial Boulevard.
“Miss Chrysanthemum represents the Mum Festival at all events throughout the Festival,” continued Longo. “Important information, applications, and further details are now available on the Pageant’s website: at https://misschrysanthemumpageant.godaddysites.com/ . We are certainly looking forward to continuing this honored Festival tradition that promises to be a highlight of this year’s Mum Festival.”
