It literally rained on their parade.

But that wasn't enough to keep the contenders for Miss America 2016 from beaming on the Atlantic City Boardwalk Saturday for the Show Us Your Shoes Parade. There was plenty of glitz and glamour — and even if the skies weren't bright, the contestants' attitudes and smiles were.

The 2016 Miss America Competition will be broadcast live from Atlantic City's Boardwalk Hall Sunday, Sept. 13 at 9 p.m. on ABC. This year marks the pageant's 95th.
