Mr Mature America Pageant
Ocean City announces that Erik Estrada will be master of ceremonies for the Mr. Mature America Pageant on April 14, 2018.
Estrada first captured the hearts of millions of fans worldwide in his six-year run as highway patrol officer Frank Poncherello in the TV series "CHiP's." Estrada has also appeared in numerous other television and motion picture roles, including the new "Armed and Famous" reality series on CBS. His talent and charm will be a perfect fit for Ocean City’s pageant, which mixes self-deprecating humor with nostalgia and talent in a tribute to men ages 55 and older. Estrada will host the fifth annual event and conduct on-stage interviews with contestants. (Read full bio of Estrada.)
The pageant is scheduled for 7 p.m. Saturday, April 14 on the Ocean City Music Pier. The event is the first and only pageant of its kind in the United States. The pageant includes competition in talent, judge’s interview, poise and appearance, and on-stage question.
