RESIDENTS OF central and western Jamaica will have an opportunity to see the contestants in the Miss Jamaica World Pageant, as the Miss Jamaica World Roadshow stops in Mandeville, Manchester, and Montego Bay, St. James, this weekend.
Today, the 20 beauties will stop in Mandeville at the Manchester Shopping Centre, going on to the Fairview Shopping Complex in Bogue, Montego Bay, on Saturday. Both shows are scheduled to start at 1 p.m. and are free.
The road shows, according to Spartan, organisers of Miss Jamaica World 2004, “will help to further decentralise the pageant and allow Jamaicans to feel closer to the finalists and the eventual winner”.
GETTING TO KNOW THE CONTESTANTS
Additionally, the road shows will provide an opportunity for the public to see, up close and personal, the contestants for which they will vote in the B-mobile Miss Jamaica World public vote.
The organisers promise “a very exciting and upbeat show” at each location. The fashion show will feature casual clothing from leading designers and fashion houses and there will be a swimsuit parade by the 20 finalists, wearing outfits by Bay Harbour. The Miss Jamaica World 2004 contest will climax with the Grand Coronation show, scheduled for Saturday, September 11, at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel.
