Galatyn Park Urban Center has been abuzz with activity lately as Richardson’s Eisemann Center will be the site of the Miss Texas/Miss Texas’ Outstanding Teen scholarship competitions for the seventh time beginning next week. Sign toppers recognizing the competitions have been installed on street signs in the area, and the Eisemann Center and Renaissance Hotel are getting ready to welcome the 83 candidates, their guests and competition fans.

The first event will be a “Bluebonnet Arrival and Visionary Brunch” Sunday morning where candidates will be introduced. Individual tickets to the event are $35; for tickets, click here.

Pageant preliminary competitions and finals take place at the Eisemann Center beginning June 22—see Arts/Culture below for more information.
