Even a little rain couldn't stop this Atlantic City tradition. The 2019 Miss America candidates paraded down the world-famous boardwalk Saturday, ahead of the big competition Sunday night.

Each year we look forward to the "pageantry" that is the Miss America "Show Us Your Shoes" parade. And each year, state holders competing for the crown, wow us with their elaborate costumes and footwear that shows off their hometown pride.

See for yourself in the gallery below!

Of course by Sunday night, one of these beautiful women will be our new Miss America 2019. Who will it be?
