Pageant of Pulchritude in Galveston

Pageant of Pulchritude in Galveston

After 77 years, Galveston has revived the Pageant of Pulchritude, a bathing beauty contest that was a fixture on the island in the Roaring '20s. Our very own John Nova Lomax was a judge at the pageant as "ghosts of Bettie Page and Galveston's glorious past were brought back to life." PHOTOS BY KEVIN SCOTT
