The tiaras are ready.

All that is lacking is the princesses to be crowned.

The 3rd Miss Fairest of the Fair pageant is set for today at the Crossroads Arena. Registration begins at 9 a.m. with the pageant getting under way at 10.

"I am really looking forward to this one," said director Tiffany Kennedy of Sparkle in downtown Corinth. "All the little girls are super excited to be going on before the Duck Dynasty stars."

Kennedy will have a couple of celebrities helping with the event. TaNechi Temple, a recent Top Ten finisher in the Miss Mississippi pageant, will be the emcee as well as perform her talent routine from the state pageant. Temple was the winner of the evening gown competiton, with a gown from Sparkle, at the Miss Mississippi event.

Ava Claire McClamroch, who has appeared on TLC's "Toddlers & Tiaras" is set to assist in the crowning of the pageant queens. The youngster will also have a meet and greet session for fans.

Ava has been doing a lot of boutique modeling. She has been on Zulily, modeled for a GAP store, is a regular model for Huggaluggs and recently modeled for Kettle Of Fish. Ava has even appeared in a few online magazines.
