‘Queen of the Bay’ Week includes unveiling of memorial plaque

Posted: Wednesday, August 23, 2023. 9:17 am CST.

By Aaron Humes: If anything is a true harbinger of St. George’s Caye Day, it is the selection of the “beautiful, smiling Queen of the Bay,” to quote the traditional song.

That designate will be selected this Saturday at the Civic Center for the 78th time since 1946, a tradition unbroken even by COVID-19 when the pageant went virtual in 2020.

A week of activities is underway and is building up to the unveiling of a special plaque on Thursday afternoon, 2 p.m., at the historical Memorial Park in Belize City. This plaque features engraved names of all past Queens of the Bay from 1946 to the present. This beautiful granite plaque will serve as a tribute for years to come for the patriotic Queen of the Bay pageant.

The delegates have been busy with media appearances and courtesy calls with the Governor General, the Prime Minister, the Leader of the Opposition, Mayors, and the Special Envoy. But the real business begins on Wednesday with the formal interview session which is closed and the talent competition on Wednesday night, which forms part of the final scores assessed after Saturday’s main event.

Talent Night tickets are available for $20 at the door at the Bliss Center via Digiwallet, while pageant night tickets go for $40 premium, $30 reserve, $20 general from various outlets.

The winner will be crowned at official ceremonies held on St. George’s Caye Day weekend.
