A spectacular and exceptional crowd gathered at the Festival grounds on Tuesday night, El Salvador Night.

The five contestants, representing the Mundo Maya countries of Honduras, El Salvador, Mexico, Guatemala and Belize dazzled the audience with presentations in sensational cultural costumes, evening wear, swimsuits and a question and answer session. They also performed a dance as a group, moving to the sound of los ilegales, who will be performering on Belize/Caribbean on Saturday, August 23rd. The re-designed and improved grounds with a higher stage provided much better visibility and spacious accommodations.
