Tomorrow night, the folks of Carrollton, Kentucky will gather on Court Street for their monthly First Friday festival and celebration, and this one is going to be one heck of a two-liter of Mountain Dew. That’s because parents will be bringing their kids to compete against each other in pageant format for a variety of honors, and they all focus on one theme – how much their children look like Honey Boo Boo Child.
The contest will be open to anyone ages 1 to 10, with two categories. The first category is glitz, which lets contestants dress up in false eyelashes, manicures and other fashionable ways.

A trophy, a crown and 10 new $1 bills will be presented for Prettiest Honey Boo Boo, Cutest Honey Boo Boo, Most Original Honey Boo Boo and Grand Supreme Honey Boo Boo. (Via the Madison Courier)
