The 2016 Miss Snowball Derby pageant is now just two days away. This year’s competition will air live on Speed51.com on Thursday, November 17 from the Downtown Pensacola, Florida Beef O’Brady’s restaurant.
This year’s pageant is expected to be the biggest yet, and the Speed51 TV broadcast will give family and friends who can’t make it to Beef O’Brady’s the ability to watch and support contestants from all over.
Those hoping to watch will simply need to sign up for a free, basic Speed51.com account and then log in on Thursday to watch the pageant.
The Miss Snowball Derby contest is open to women 18 years of age and older, regardless of where they may live in the country. The only requirement is that all contestants must be in Pensacola on Thursday night, as well as for all Snowball Derby events from November 29 through December 4.
The person chosen as Miss Snowball Derby will be expected to represent Five Flags Speedway at as many Snowball Derby-related functions as possible. In addition, Miss Snowball Derby will be on hand for all Victory Lane photos, pre-race ceremonies and occasional fan interaction during the course of the weekend.
