The flag monument at the Northern round-a-bout was the venue this morning for a brief visit of thirty-two queens from across Mexico who will compete among each other to represent that country at the Miss Earth Pageant later this year in Thailand. The Miss Earth Mexico 2011 delegation was joined by the reigning and designate Queen of the Bay and Queens of the Bay from New York and California. Following the event, Belize City Mayor, Zenaida Moya told Love News that while today’s event was to welcome thirty two young ambassadors from Mexico, it was planned as part of Belize’s September celebrations to expose Belize internationally.

“We held the event right here next to our flag monument because again we are trying to ensure that Belize gets all the exposure it deserves and our Miss Earth representative to the Miss Earth pageant in Thailand this November will also get that worldwide publicity that we would want her to get so when she goes into the pageant people would already know about her and would have known about Belize as well.”

The Miss Earth Pageant to select a representative will take place on September eleventh in Chetumal, while the international Miss Earth Pageant will take place on November twelfth in Pattaya, Thailand with over a hundred and thirty countries, including Belize, taking part.
