'Geraldine' takes grand prize at Miss Carillon Pageant
For a few minutes, “Geraldine” was alive and well at the Miss Carillon Pageant Friday afternoon.
Salisbury firefighters and others volunteered for the fun event, which featured men dressing as women.
Doug File’s version of “Geraldine” took the grand prize and delighted the dozens of residents and others enjoying the pageant at Carillon Assisted Living, 1915 Mooresville Road.
Contestants showed off their talents, including singing some non-top 40 tunes that included “Row, Row, Row Your Boat.”
Residents of the facility served on the panel of judges.
Several local businesses donated prizes for the participants.
Organizers accepted donations for the Salisbury Fallen Firefighters Fund in honor of Victor Isler and Justin Monroe, who died on March 7 while battling a fire at Salisbury Millwork.
