Ms. Senior California 2004 recently visited the Marina del Rey Hotel — site of the Saturday, September 17th, Ms. Senior California Pageant 2005.

Eighteen contestants from local contests throughout the state are expected to compete for the state title, according to Gloria Davis, event executive producer and coordinator.

“All of the contestants are 60 years old or older and are entering ‘The Age of Elegance’— which will be the theme for the senior pageant,” Davis said.

Contestants are still eligible to compete in the finals, Davis said.

The state winner will advance to a competition in Las Vegas in November.
