For the sixth consecutive year, the 53 Miss America contestants walked the runway at the Fashion Mall. This year the contestants were decked out in beautiful designs provided by the Joseph Ribkoff Company, who will also be providing the opening number dresses for the 2011 Miss America Pageant presnted by DSW. The Master of Ceremonies for the event was Miss America Organization Board of Directors' Lynn Hackerman Weidner, Miss New Jersey 1971.
After the contestants walked the clear, Plexiglas, 80 foot long retractable runway with multimedia screens playing, there was a meet and greet session where they signed autographs and photos for the public.
