Miss Destin 2016
This year’s pageant is going to be loads of fun and something you will not want to miss.
The pageant is not a beauty contest, the young lady who receives the title of Miss Destin is judged on her personality, communication skills and her availability to fulfill the duties of Miss Destin at the 68th Annual Destin Fishing Rodeo. She serves as a public figure throughout the year, representing Destin at many functions, including the annual Destin Fishing Rodeo.
