WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — It’s not your typical beauty pageant. It’s a pageant highlighting the talents of those with developmental disabilities in our area.

From singing to dancing to piano playing, participants showed off their skills to the audience at the Cape Fear Christian Church. Everyone was supportive of each other after all the practice they put into their performances. It was pretty nerve wracking for some participants but they said it was an amazing experience.

“The feeling of being on stage is just really exciting once you’re on it. And so, you’re nervous of what they’re going to think but once you’re up there, you just do your own thing,” pageant participant Daniel Vestal said.

At the end, they awarded everyone, both boys and girls, with crowns for their performances.
