ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. — Mackenzie Bart, a native of Brockway, is a contestant in the Miss America Pageant, competing as Miss Ohio.
She won the first night of preliminary competition in the pageant in the talent competition with a ventriloquism routine.
According to Associated Press reports, Bart wowed the crowd with a ventriloquism routine in which her dummy appeared to sing the Mary Poppins song “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.”
“I was obsessed with Lamb Chop and I loved Shari Lewis,” Bart told reporters afterward. “I used to sit with an old sock and I would mimic what they were doing. I just loved it.”
