State Theatre was the place to be Sunday. The lights were low, the dresses were sparkling like Champagne and the smiles were plentiful inside the theatre for the 54th Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade Queens Pageant.

The event began with a presentation of colors by Bishop Murphy Assembly Color Corps, followed by the National Anthem sang by Judge Timothy J. Kelly. Sue Banaszek, 2007 Parade Marshal presented 2008 Parade Marshall, Kathi Newsham her "reign" followed by The Evening Wear Competition which was filled with glamour, jewels and beauty.

Opening number "Dance To The Music" performed by all 13 contestants

Each contestant competed in a Myths and Legends of Ireland talent and an on-stage question interview, which combined, counted for seventy percent of their overall score. The Evening Wear Competition counted as the remaining thirty percent.

Miss Congeniality was named as Kelsey Sharrow followed by the Coronation of St. Patrick's Day Queen and Court Ceremony. The Queen and her court are as follows:

St. Patrick's Day Queen 2008: Lauren Moore

1st Runner-Up: Kelly Bond ($600 scholarship)
