Miss Finger Lakes 2016

The Miss Finger Lakes pageant held its 18th pageant, and crowned four new queens to compete at Miss New York and Miss New York’s Outstanding Teen. The competition was fierce, and any of them would have made a wonderful representative of the area, and made the local organization proud.

The outgoing titleholders gave beautiful farewell speeches, and many tears were shed. It is truly special that so many of the 2015 titleholders had earned new titles. For the past two tears, most if not all, of the the runners up went on to compete at Miss New York. It will be interesting to see how many of this year’s contestants go on to join the Miss New York Class of 2016.
