HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The annual Mississippi's Miss Hospitality Pageant kicked off in Hattiesburg this week, and the contestants can be seen all over the Hub City leading up to the weekend pageant.

The young women dined at Chick-Fil-A Monday afternoon, which is a tradition for the program. That is just one of the many activities the ladies will participate in before a winner is crowned Saturday at the Saenger Theater.

"All the preparation is finished. We have done the practice and studied our current events and practiced our speeches. This week, for me, is all about fun," Hattiesburg's Miss Hospitality Olivia Sanguinetti said.

Tickets for Friday and Saturday night's programs can be purchased by calling the Saenger box office at 601-584-4888 or the Hattiesburg Convention Center 601-268-3220.

William Carey came from destruction to full restoration. Sophomore Cassidy Monk says, “The lord has just delivered us from such a tragic event..."
