  • Bagel Baby 2011

    2011 Contestants

    The contest is for the first 101 kids to pre-register.

  • Registration information:
    • For the past three years, we have held the contest over 2 nights… so, Bagelfest Beautiful Baby Contest is set for July 14 and 15, at 6:30pm, both nights at the Cross County Mall.  Parents will receive information at registration about the two nights.  Age groups will be split up based on how many kids register in each age group.

      Registration for this year’s baby contest will be Saturday, June 13 at 10am at the Cross County Mall (near the fountain)… and limited to the first 101 to sign up.

      To participate:  Your child(ren) must be newborn to 4 years old.  Your child cannot be 5 on or before July 15, 2015.   You must also live within the listening area of 101.3 WMCI, 92.1 the Axe or 104.3 the Party.

      To register your child(ren):  Bring a copy of his or her birth certificate (photocopy is fine.)  SBL also gives out a “live birth” record (or something like that), that is also okay to bring.  Children do not need to be present at registration.

      The Cross County Mall opens at 6am (for Mall Walkers) so, you can get in line that early if you want too.  You may have someone sign up your child(ren) for you, please send them with a copy of your child’s birth certificate.

      Once we start sign ups (10am), we can typically get people in and out in about 15 minutes.
