Special to the Journal

The 4rd Annual Texas Angels Pageant is fast approaching! The pageant system believes that EVERYONE is a gift from God, regardless of their abilities. These pageants are not about ability. This is simply a chance for families to come together and celebrate the Angels’ sweet spirits as we feel that every life has value. The pageant is open to children, youth, and adults, both boys and girls, with special needs. There is no entry fee for participants.
The 2016 Texas Angels Pageant will be held on Saturday, Feb 27 at the Midway Performing Arts Center (located on the Midway Middle School campus), 800 N Hewitt Drive, Hewitt, Texas 76643. Registration Begins at 8:30am. The pageant will be divided into two pageants this year to enable the younger angels to leave earlier and not have such a long day.
Pageant for Angels ages Birth-10 years old will begin at 10:30am and the Pageant for Angels age 11 and up will begin at 3:00pm There will be hair and makeup artists available as well as games, arts, and crafts.
Exhibitors onsite with great information regarding their organization. Lunch will be provided for participants and their immediate family and our pageant volunteers.
Last year, Barry and Tiffany Elkin’s daughter , Molly Kate, participated for the first time.
Tiffany said, “Kate was almost two. It is a very special day to celebrate all the angels with special needs. It is truly a celebration that God has made each one of them in a wonderful way.
All of the parents get to choose a special name that their angel is crowned as.
“Last year, our name that we chose for Molly Kate was Princess of the One True King,” Tiffany said. “It is just a happy happy day to get to celebrate the lives that truly do bring so much joy to so many people.”
The event also is a time for families to meet others that have children with special needs.
