Miss Belize Pageant to be Held on Tenth of September

Opal Enriquez

Meanwhile Belizeans across the Jewel are anxiously anticipating the Miss Belize pageant which will be held on September tenth.  The pageant takes place at the Bliss Center for the Performing Arts in Belize City with sixteen delegates from throughout the country competing for the crown and the opportunity to represent Belize at the Miss Universe Pageant in December. Enriquez told News Five today about the preliminaries leading up to the event; it’s all creating a buzz because Belize has not been participating in Miss Universe for some years now.


Opal Enriquez, Director/Pageant Coordinator, Queen of the Jewel

“The girls are excited; they met the requirements so we are excited about that. We have sixteen delegates, north to south, everybody is accounted for, so we are very exciting; it is the first time there has been that many delegates in a Miss Belize pageant in the history of Belize so that in itself is exciting. And the girls are ready to go. They’re ready to give it their all; they are confident in who they area, they are excited about the areas that they are representing and I can’t wait to see what comes out of it. We kick off tomorrow here; we are going to be leaving from the Bliss, heading up to Maruba Resort who is one of our main sponsors. And the girls will be there for a retreat and an official photo shoot with Richard Holder who is our Director of Photography. We have enlisted the talents of Christian Bird and his partner; they are cinematographers from the U.S. They’ve shot for BET, ESPN; they’ve done spreads for Vogue Magazine, Maxim…so highly reputable gentlemen who will be working with us this year. We are going to go up to Altun Ha because we want to feature Belize as a tourist destination. Part of our partnership with B.T.B. is that we are just going to tour the entire nation and show all that Belize has to offer in terms of welcoming the cameras and welcoming tourists to come and see our country along with our beautiful delegates. So they’ll be hosting us throughout the entire country. We also have a fashion show, we have a beach beauty contest, we have an afternoon tea party and then we have the pageant which is going to be right here at the Bliss on September tenth at seven-thirty.”


Tickets will be available at the Bliss Box Office at the end of the month.
