The event was filled with glamour and
sophistication. It was a show to remember for all times. Pageant
coordinator Mrs. Vanessa Sahatoo-Manoo, former queen and model of Trinidad
& Tobago gave the audience a pageant show never seen on the Caribbean
coast. The FADCANIC auditorium was filled to its capacity. The audience
erupted in cheers as the show opened up with the costume segment led by
the beautiful 18 year old Miss Orinoco-Kasmalee Brigeth Patterson Bennett.
The costume segment was followed by the swimsuit, talent and evening gown
segments. Pearl Lagoon's native Warner Cayasso serenaded the delegates as
they stood graciously in their evening gowns. All six delegates were angel
like and graceful. Mrs. Vanessa Sahatoo-Manoo did an exemplary job getting
the entire event together working tirelessly with the delegates getting
them prepared for a wonderful night of glitz and glamour!
The delegates had the opportunity to travel
and visit the communities of La Fe and Orinoco. They were greeted warmly by the locals
of both communities and partook in a traditional dish, played games and
danced to traditional music played by the locals. They also visited the FADCANIC Primary School where they addressed the young students as they
stood in awe to see such beautiful young ladies before them. The cheers
from the kids as each delegate presented herself went echoing throughout
