San Pedro has a new Carnaval Queen - Melida Perreira! Kicking off our traditional Carnaval celebrations was the popular third annual Mrs. Reina del Carnaval Pageant that took place Saturday, January 23, 2016, at the Angel Nuñez Auditorium. Five lovely ladies took the stage and showcased their best pose down and talent performances.
It was a full house as many cheered on their favorite conestant vying for the title of Carnaval Queen of San Pedro Town. The contestants participated in four segments that included an opening dance with outgoing Reina del Carnaval Mrs. Silvia Patricia Lopez, beachwear, talent and eveningwear. Performances by young singer Marthalicia and dances by the Black and White Garfuna Group filled up the entertainment lineup of the pageant. The talent segment was what everybody looked forward too as the contestants perform in the spirit of carnaval with humorous presentations.
