HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Contestants in the annual Mississippi Miss Hospitality Pageant in Hattiesburg spent much of their third day in the Hub City Tuesday visiting patients and learning about the Spirit of Women Program at Forrest General Hospital.

The contestants, who arrived in town on Sunday, will sign autographs from 1-2 p.m. Wednesday at the Asbury Discovery Center at the Hattiesburg Zoo and will continue their rehearsals for the pageant preliminaries, which will be Friday night at 8 p.m. at the Saenger Theater. In the meantime, some of them said they are enjoying their pageant experience and learning a lot about the local area. 

"It's just about making friendships, it's not about the competition," said Caroline Little, who's representing the City of Laurel. 

"I've learned a great bit about everyone, everyone is so nice and sweet," said Kelsey Proctor, who's representing Wayne County. "Most pageants aren't like this and it's been a great experience," she said.

The finals will be on Saturday night, beginning at 8 p.m., also at the Saenger Theater.
