Carnival Pageant Kicks off at the Bliss

Sandra Mahler

The Miss Carnival Pageant is underway at the Bliss. The show, held for the first time, is being organized by the Belize Carnival Association. While it is about celebrating the spirit and unity that should be carnival, organizers say it is also a preview of what this year’s carnival season will be all about. We spoke with President Sandra Mahler.


Sandra Mahler, President, Belize Carnival Association

“We have fourteen contestants; we have six junior contestants and eight senior contestants. They are going to do a dance to show unity among all of them, so we will start off with a unity dance. After that, we will have a talent section so they will bring out and show us what they have to offer and then, which is the biggest part of the pageant which is the costume section is where we’ll see a whole lot of creativity and where the carnival spirit went into. After that we will have a section with question and answer because if you are going to be Miss Carnival, you must know some history or something about carnival.  We are going to see a tight show tonight in that we are not going to have a lot of breaks. We are going to have some entertainment because we have an artist who will come out and release a soca song as well. But it is going to be tight; packed; colorful; energetic. If you are not there tonight you are going to lose out. This is the start of carnival. It’s the first time we are having a pageant like this.”


The senior winner of the pageant will become an ambassador for the Belize Carnival Association for the next year of her reign.
