Lewis paid tribute to Delaware, known as the Diamond State, by wearing sparkling platform pumps at the parade. Lewis, who graduated from Temple University and Wilmington (Del.) University, recently completed her first year with Teach for America in Delaware.

Her shoe is currently on display at the Historical Museum as part of an ongoing Miss America exhibit that also includes a shoe worn in last year’s Show Us Your Shoes Parade by then-Miss New Jersey Cara McCollum.

The Atlantic City Historical Museum, operated by the Atlantic City Free Public Library, showcases the culturally diverse, exciting history of Atlantic City in a nostalgic timeline. Visitors can enjoy exhibits of Garden Pier, Mr. Peanut, sand sculptures, casinos and the Summer of 1964 – along with vintage photographs and local artifacts.
