The Beaver Queen Pageant is a mix of costumes, excess and shady dealings. It boasts participants with names like Scarlett O'Beavah and Cherry Cherry Bang Bang DaBeava. Saturday is the 7th Annual Beaver Queen Pageant, and it's all for a good cause: raising money for the Durham-based Ellerbe Creek Watershed Association.
