John Tramble, Mr. July, took the top title Friday night in the 2013 Mardi Gras Snow Daze Mr. Prince George Pageant.
Amid screams of approval from a mostly female audience, Tramble was presented with the ceremonial cloak and crown. Fitness trainer Peter Campbell is runner-up in the competition. Baxter Goertz, Mr. September, won the Mr. Congeniality prize.
This year, the popular event, which officially opens the Snow Daze winter festival, included a cleverly choreographed group dance to music and songs of the 1980s (choreographer Jana Phillips). There was a talent portion giving contestants a chance to show their versatility who can forget Campbell as Cupid? And in the fashion segment of the show, the men modelled formal, casual and sleepwear clothes which meant the chance to show off some chest, leg and arm muscle.
The annual event is a fundraiser for Snow Daze events.
