The first Mr. Walla Walla Pageant is April 18 at Gesa Power House Theatre in Walla Walla.
The event, billed as a tongue-in-cheek take on a beauty pageant, will include formal wear, active wear and talent competitions. A bachelor auction also is planned. The event, which starts at 7:30 p.m., will raise money for dance education in schools in the region.
Tickets cost $30 and include a glass of wine for people 21 and older. They’re available at www.phtww.com.
