The nine contestants of the Miss St. Maarten Senior Carnival Queen Pageant will participate in their speech and culture wear competition this Saturday, April 16 at the Carl and Sons Unique Inn in Cole Bay. Showtime is 7:00pm.
Tickets are now on sale for the event at US $10 and can be purchased at the temporary offices of the St. Maarten Carnival Development Foundation (SCDF) located in the two blue containers at the rear of the Government Administration building.
The contestants will showcase their culture wear and deliver a speech around the theme of "What Country St. Maarten Means to Me." The point accumulated from this event will carry over to the main pageant on Tuesday, April 26.
The SCDF is urging interested persons to purchase tickets early as seating is very limited at the venue. "Family and friends of the contestants should purchase now in order to support their contestant. It is a limited seating affair, so don’t wait," President of the SCDF Stuart Johnson said.
