GOLDEN HILL – Friday’s evening of glamour was capped off by the crowning of Allyson Adams as 2016 Miss Outdoors. The pageant took place on the first day of the 71st Annual Outdoor Show, held at South Dorchester School.

Miss Adams, 21, wowed the crowd in the packed gym with her musical talent as she sang and played piano, as well as her style and poise in a black evening gown. She will represent Dorchester County at a variety of local events, and early next year, will travel to Cameron Parish, La., to attend similar celebrations there.

In addition to the Miss Outdoors, Little Mr. And Little Miss pageants, there are numerous displays and demonstrations of local art, culture and history at the event, which is always well attended and strongly supported by residents and visitors.

“We are proud to show you the best that comes from our boot-sucking marshes and the flowing water that surrounds them,” a statement from the National Outdoor Foundation, Inc., said. “Most of all, we hope to share the unique spirit and character of our hard-working people, who keep one foot in a technologically savvy world, and the other stuck deep in our traditional, old-school ways.”

This year’s show was dedicated to the memory of Robert “Bobby” William Hall Sr., a South Dorchester businessman who was very active in his community.
