The Miss San Pedro Lions event is a popular annual celebration that many look forward to, both those who participate and those who want to attend the evening. Â On November 23rd, several beautiful ladies took to the stage to try and win the title, with Arlethe Lima being crowned Miss San Pedro Lions Queen for the year 2013/14.
Every year this popular San Pedro Town event is held to give local girls the chance of being the San Pedro Lions Queen. Â In 2013, four stunning ladies vied for the title, taking to San Pedro High SchoolÂs Angel Nunez Auditorium to wow the crowds and impress the judges. Â Hosted by the San Pedro Lions, the ever gregarious John Palacio was the Master of Ceremony, helping to bring a fun and enthusiastic atmosphere to the evening. Â The four contestants were each sponsored by local businesses, with Hummingbird Rattan Furnishings backing Miss Erica Bodden and the Cayo Espanto Resort sponsoring Miss Julissa Trejo. Â Meanwhile, Miss Arlethe Lima was sponsored by Rojo Lounge, whilst Caribena Enterprises backed beautiful teen, Catline Benguche.
Opening the show with a dance presentation, the four competitors were joined by the current San Pedro Lions Queen, Alexis Del Valle. Â Mr. Palacio from LoveFM introduced Mrs. Yoli Rivero, Ms. Natasha Stuart, Mr. Johnny Grief, Dr. Giovanni Solorzano and Ms. Brie Harding as the competitionsÂ five judges. Â In addition, formal tabulator, Mrs. Pat Grief, was also in attendance.
The evening was filled with dance and treats for the audience, with the San Pedro Dance Academy kicking things off with a Middle-Eastern-style dance whilst the contestants prepared for the Island Wear modeling segment. Â Each girl was then offered a short time to perform, with both Ms Benguche and Ms Bodden performing dances. Â Ms. Trejo acted out a circus ring-leader-themed extravaganza, whilst Ms. Lima performed a short dance and Helen Keller dramatization. Â While the contestants changed into eveningwear, last yearÂs winner, Ms. Del Valle then took to the stage, before a short question and answer section. Â Finally, after some deliberation, Ms. Arlethe Lima was crowned.
The entire night was a complete success and enjoyed by all those in attendance. Â San Pedro Lions Queen Arlethe Lima will now attend public Lions functions over the next year whilst also becoming the clubÂs beauty ambassador.
