The finalists were greeted by various eminent personalities including Mayor Don Guardian who was happy about the fact that the finale of Miss America is going to be held in Atlantic City yet again and is eagerly waiting to know who will be the next respected ambassador of the city.

“Everyone loves Miss America, whether you’re here for the parade, the pageant or anything in between. We adopt the winner of this pageant as one of our own, and we’re very proud to call her our ambassador.” Guardian said.
