Ah, the heel parade, a.k.a the Miss America Show Us Your Shoes Parade, a celebration leading into the final night of the 2015 Miss America Competition’s live broadcast on ABC from historic Boardwalk Hall at 9 p.m. EST on Sunday, September 14. 

The two hour parade kicks off today at 5 PM and stretches over two miles with special guests Vonda Van Dyke celebrating her 50th anniversary of being crowned Miss America in 1965 and Debbye Turner Bell celebrating her 25th anniversary of being crowned Miss America in 1990.

“I’m a farm girl,” Jessica Burson told Hollywood on the Potomac during an interview in Washington, DC. earlier this month.  “I was raised in a really male dominated culture so I was wearing cowboy boots and riding horses and driving tractors and then decided I was done with that chapter of my life.  I still have passion for it but am ready to take it to a different stage – that passion.  I then bought my first set of heels and have been chasing after the dream of becoming Miss America since then.”
