Rainbow River Pageants is a nonprofit organization that coordinates six pageants traditionally showcased at Dunnellon's annual Boom Town Day.
The goal of Rainbow River Pageants is to instill confidence, poise, leadership, and social skills into the contestants to create actively involved citizens for our local community.
The first pageant winner, Eugina Cannon, who was crowned "Miss Dunnellon" in 1952 still resides here in Dunnellon, FL.
The pageants are approaching 70 years, and we are still crowning young citizens! As we have evolved, we have also added categories for every youth age group to allow for more community involvement.
Boomtown Baby- walking to age 2
Tiny Miss and Mister Dunnellon- 3-4 yrs
Little Miss and Mister Dunnellon- 5-7 yrs
Duchess and Duke of Dunnellon- 8-10 yrs
Junior Miss and Mister Dunnellon- 10-13 yrs

We are honored to carry on this legacy for our past contestants, our future contestants, and we hope to continue to draw a crowd to Dunnellon's annual Boom Town Day.
