Camden Sophisticated Sisters to appear in Miss America Pageant - Show US Your Shoes Parade
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Camden, NJ's own competitive youth drill team, the nonprofit organization devoted to inspiring and guiding Camden's young men, women and children to rise above the crime and violence of one of the nation's most dangerous cities, is scheduled to participate in the Miss America Pageant - Show Us Your Shoes Parade.
Official start point of parade on Boardwalk at Connecticut Ave where we will officially officially join the parade route. Camden Sophisticated Sisters Drill Team is number 34. The parade will be aired live on phl17 in Philadelphia and will then be broadcasting the next day, Sunday September 15th on Channel 6 ABC Philadelphia at 4 o'clock p.m. The parade is 2.3 miles long, which is longer than most parades so please plan accordingly.
Viewers will be awed by the energy and precision of these young performers and inspired by their discipline, their dedication, and their story. Enjoy this opportunity to support our young brothers and sisters as they showcase their talents and support a long time Atlantic City, NJ tradition.
The Camden Sophisticated Sisters Drill team Inc. and The Almighty Percussion Sound Drum line was established November 12, 1986 at the Camden Youth Activity Center in Camden, N.J. With members as young as 2 or 3 and as old as their 30's and 40's, the organization boasts a 100% high school graduation rate and a non-existent teen pregnancy and incarceration rate in an American city some see as failed, without hope, even a warzone.

All 53 entries in the parade — The Show Us Your Shoes Parade started in the 1970s, says Best, the producer. Hecklers would find Miss America contestants in rehearsal mode, wearing slippers to cushion the blow. So one year the ladies decided to wear more than just your average high heel. To silence any possible taunts, they decked their stems to the max.
