In the city, everyone's getting ready for the sweet sounds and sights of carnival bacchanal this Saturday, but in Orange Walk - their carnival comes later, and this weekend, six of Sugar City's finest will compete for the title of Miss Orange Walk 2011.
It's been more than five years since the northern town has held a Miss Orange Walk pageant, and, Fiona Mazier, one of the organizers of this year's pageant told us why now:
Fiona Mazier - Pageant Organizer
"This year we have decided to bring back, and to start the Miss Orange Walk Pageant as one of our activities under the Orange Walk Town Council. And again, this pageant is to support the Cancer Support Group in Orange Walk. We have 6 beautiful young ladies vying for the title of Miss Orange Walk 2011. Again the entire Orange Walk Community and visitors are welcome to support us. We will have segments. We have the swimsuits, costumes, evening gown, and many more items which will be very entertaining. So we are asking everybody to come up and support these young ladies."
The pageant is set for this Saturday, September 3rd, at 7 P.M. at the Orange Walk multi-purpose complex.
