Miss Jamaica World Cornwall Pageant for Wexford Hotel
MONTEGO BAY, St James
A new queen will be crowned tonight in the Miss Jamaica World Cornwall Pageant scheduled for the Wexford Hotel on Gloucester Ave, popularly called the 'Hip Strip' in Montego Bay.
The event was originally scheduled for Pier One, also in Montego Bay, but due to the inclement weather that has been affecting the resort city in recent days,
organisers and franchise holder for the event, Complete Entertainment Services, headed by Junior Taylor, have decided against the planned outdoor staging of the much-anticipated pageant.
But while the change will not see an increase in prices, the all inclusive lounge has been removed, and the VIP area has been reduced.
"All other facets of the pageant will remain in place and our production team is currently working to ensure the quality of the show is not compromised by the change in venue" Taylor assured the Jamaica Observer West.
The event will see eleven girls vying for the title as well as over $500,000 in cash and prizes, the winner will also go on to represent
the county of Cornwall in the finals for Ms Jamaica World later this year at the Montego Bay Convention Centre in Rose Hall, St James.
