for the coveted crown tonight at the North Kitsap auditorium.

POULSBO — Six North End contestants will be “Putting on the Ritz” in a bid for the Miss Viking Fest crown tonight. The ninth annual pageant will be held at 7 p.m. at the North Kitsap Auditorium.

Tickets are $8 for adults, $5 for children under 12; doors open at 6 p.m.

Also at the event tonight, a donation collection for Santa’s Cause, which will be accepting new toys and clothing for kids in need. Donate an item and receive a free raffle ticket.

Current Miss Viking Fest Whitney Glebe said the organization’s court and committee members became like family to her during her year as royalty. The Olympic College student, 18, now plans to continue her education and eventually enter orthodontics, though she said she’ll give the Miss Poulsbo pageant some consideration. She had a bit of advice to pass on to the next ascendant of the Miss Viking Fest throne.

“Take the most out of the experience and do all that you can do,” she said. “It’s literally a once in a lifetime opportunity and it’s worth every moment of it.”
