An annual children's pageant that has taken place in the Perch Palace Mall since 1980, and before that, at the Comet Fire roller rink since 1953, Little Miss Pumpkin Patch has had a small but dedicated audience throughout the years. It is a standard pageant; with judges in their sixties who might have once been bathing suit models, overly obsessed mothers that smell eternally of hairspray, and young girls who like being pretty but otherwise have little grip of what's going on. Though they once happened in early spring, they currently take place in October and have an Autumn theme.
Prissy won first place in 1985 and 1986. She and her mother were the first to show up at the mall both times, and spent all four available pre-show hours on prep.
