Miss America came back

Hello pretty ladies
You were gone for a while
We missed your pretty faces
Your poise and your smile

You were taken to Las Vegas
That place just wasn’t right
But then you did return
Much to our delight

You belong in Atlantic City
Where it all began
As a swim suit competition
The local people ran

Back to Atlantic City
The parade will be at night
And every one of these ladies
Will be a beautiful sight

Miss America 2014: Pageant waves to Atlantic City once again

They arrived like an assembly of goddesses in the late-afternoon sun, light glistening off their 53 identical silver crowns. Positioned against a backdrop of Roman columns in the outdoor amphitheater of Atlantic City's Kennedy Plaza, beauties from around the country — the contestants in the 2014 Miss America pageant — gathered on the city's boardwalk for the first time in nine years.

The last Miss America to have her dream come true in Atlantic City was crowned in September 2004. The next year, the pageant left "America's Favorite Playground" for Las Vegas. This month, Miss America is back and both Atlantic City and New Jersey are rolling out the red carpet.
