At 9 a.m., there will be the Myotonic Goat Show with cash prizes for winners.

Later in the day at 6:30 p.m. is the Miss Teen McCracken County beauty pageant at the Robert Cherry Civic Center, followed by the Miss McCracken County beauty pageant at 7 p.m. Admission is $2. Miss Teen McCracken County and Miss McCracken County will receive cash awards and the opportunity to compete in the Miss Kentucky Teen and Miss Kentucky pageants.

Sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of South Paducah, this weekend's events, in addition to those during the official week, will benefit area youth programs such as the Paducah Cooperative Ministry, McCracken County Public Library, Kentucky Sheriff Boys/Girls Clubs, Paducah City and McCracken County Head Start and other charities.
