The 2018 Miss Vigo County Fair Queen and Princess Pageant will be Thursday at Tilson Auditorium in Tirey Hall at Indiana State University.

The princess pageant will begin at 5 p.m., and the queen pageant will start at 7:30 p.m. The ticket booth will open at 4 p.m. and auditorium doors will open at 4:30 p.m.

Ticket cost is $5 per person, good for both pageants. Children 7 and younger get in free.

At the entrance to the pageants, each contestant will have a jar. The money collected will be donated to P.I.N.K of Terre Haute to help Wabash Valley residents battling breast cancer. The 2001 Vigo County fair queen, Sarah Roberts-Norton, was helped tremendously by P.I.N.K before she passed in 2014.
