OCEAN CITY — Entries are open for contestants in the Mr. Mature America Pageant on April 14.

Mr. Mature celebrates the achievements of men 55 and older. The pageant, in its fifth year, mixes talent, good looks and self-deprecating humor. The Ocean City Music Pier crowd is raucous and appreciative as the contestants ham it up on stage, competing in talent, poise and interview segments.

If you have what it takes to be the world’s next “Mr. Mature” (or if you can talk somebody into it), complete the online entry form at ocnj.us/mrmature or call Michael Hartman at 609-525-9284 for more information. Deadline for sign-ups is March 14.

Erik Estrada, who played highway patrol officer Frank Poncherello on the 1970s/80s TV series "CHiPs," will host this year’s show.

Tickets for the show ($18 to $30) are available at oceancityvacation.com/boxoffice, by calling 609-399-6111 or in person at the City Hall Welcome Center or the Roy Gillian Welcome Center on the Route 52 causeway.

The Mr. Mature Pageant takes place on the evening of the Doo Dah Parade. Registration also is open for any individuals, groups or businesses who want to participate in the parade at noon that day. Sign up at ocnj.us/Doo-Dah-Parade.
