This year the Miss Mississippi Pageant will feature music from the 1960's through today.
   
The first of three nights of preliminary competitions is Wednesday at the Vicksburg Convention Center.
   
Contestants will be featured in a parade Monday night, autograph parties, a Miss Mississippi Ball Friday night and an awards ball after the crowning on Saturday.  Miss Mississippi Marie Wicks, who won last year, will crown the 2013 winner.
