Galveston Island Beach Revue Weekend
During the 1920s and early 1930s, Galveston was host to the Pageant of Pulchritude (predecessor to the Miss Universe Pageant) which has now been resurrected by Islander By Choice, LLC (IBC) as a two-day, family friendly event dubbed the Galveston Island Beach Revue. The eighth annual event features a Friday night concert and official introduction of the 2016 "Bathing Beauties. On Saturday, guests can expect live music, vendor and craft beer booths and "Bathing Beauties Contest" when 40 contestants compete in vintage and vintage-inspired swimwear for cash prizes. Beach Revue events will take place adjacent to the hotel at Beach Central and events are free to the public. For information, visit www.galvestonbeachrevue.com.
