On Friday, July 13, the Miss Central Massachusetts 2013 Beauty Pageant came to downtown Worcester to grace the spectacular setting of Mechanics Hall with 25 contestants from across the region, all competing to win the titles of Miss Princess, Little Miss, Miss Teen, and Miss Central MA. With swimsuit and eveningwear competitions, a surprise performance from a special guest, and last year’s titleholders present at the event to give the winners their crowns, the pageant was an exciting night for the audience. As the competition ended, new titles went to Victoria English for Miss Princess, Crystal Otano for Little Miss, Ashlynn Petersen for Miss Teen, and Olea Nichitina for Miss Central Massachusetts.
