(Atlantic City, NJ) — After seven years in Sin City, the Miss America Pageant is returning to its original home in Atlantic City.

New Jersey’s lieutenant governor says pageant officials are expected to make a formal announcement later today.

Miss America had been part of Atlantic City since its founding in 1921, but the pageant was moved to the Las Vegas Strip in 2006, as part of a financial and rebranding effort.
