Brazil's annual Christmas In The Park will kick off this Sunday, Nov. 18, with the Snow Flake Pageant.

Local kids, age 18 months to 11, will participate in this years pageant. Kids will compete in a variety of competitions and categories including prettiest eyes and prettiest smile.

Toni Scalf, of Toni's Tumbling and Dance Studio, has helped put on the pageant for the past several years. Scalf said each year between 30-40 kids participate.

"The winner gets a big trophy and a $25 gift card," Scalf said. "We have Ms., Mr., prince, princess, Duke and Duchess categories."

All contestants walk away with a prize, with the top winners chosen by a panel of judges. This year, Brazil mayor, Brian Wyndham, will serve on the panel.

"We're pretty excited about the mayor being a judge," Scalf said.

Wyndham isn't the only one helping out with the pageant several businesses have contributed time and resources to this years event.

"Several area business have donated to help fund the pageant," Scalf said.

Kids wishing to participate can still sign up. The deadline to have your name in the program is Friday, Nov. 16.

After the Snow Flake Pageant, the festivities will continue the following Friday, Nov. 23, with the Christmas parade. Cookies and hot chocolate will be served at the Brazil courthouse starting at 5 p.m., with the parade following at 7 p.m.

Linda Ray, treasure of Christmas in the Park, said the theme for this year's parade is an antique Christmas.

The Christmas firework show and the lights in the park will follow after the parade.

Santa will also be in the park every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night starting after the parade from 6-8 p.m.
