2016 Hi Neighbor 'Gansett Girls Calendar
Back in the early 1950's, 'Gansett was the #1 beer in all of New Nelgand. Hemlines were lower and necklines were higher and the 'Gansett Girls weren't just pretty faces printed in beer ads/ They were legitimate brand ambassadors for our beer. Every year throughout the 50's and 60's, Narragansett would hold a Miss Hi Neighbor Pageant to crown the next class of 'Gansett Girls. The ladies would travel New England stopping in at local bars, riding in small town parades, and awarding bowling league trophies and prizes at the famous annual Hi Neighbor Bass/Blue Fishing Tournament. There were certainly some memorable New England women among the 'Gansett Girl ranks, like Irene Hennessy.
This year, we have continued the 'Gansett Girl Tradition by searching all over New England. Through online contests, live pageants, and a bursting community of inspiring women, you and thousands of your fellow neighbors have helped us select 14 amazing local women to join the 'Gansett family and represent your beer.
Keep an eye out for all of the 'Gansett Girls at your favorite Neighborhood bars, beer festivals, and block parties in 2016 and have a great and safe year!
