Interesting Miss International trivia

Many people think that the Miss International Beauty Pageant is Japanese in origin. The pageant has been held in Japan since the early 1970s. However, Miss International actually orginated in Long Beach, California, USA. It wasn’t until 1968 that the pageant started to be held in Japan.

From 1952 to 1959, the Miss Universe Pageant was held in Long Beach. Upon its transfer to Miami Beach, Florida, the local Long Beach pageant organizers scrambled to have a replacement in order to continually bring in tourists. Hence, the Miss International Beauty Pageant was born.
