Dominicans got the opportunity last Saturday to get a first intimate view of the seven young ladies who will be competing for the 2017 National Queen title.
The Discover Dominica Authority, the Dominica Festivals Committee and the Queen Show Committee hosted the queen show pre-show at the Arawak House of Culture.
The mini-pageant was the contestants’ first opportunity to gauge their preparedness and wet the public’s appetite for next year’s pageant.
The ladies appeared in business attire and promotional speech, one minute talent, swim wear and elegantly casual rounds.
The 2017 queen contestants are Karla Henry, Zethra Baron, Gabrielle Abraham, Terisa Lewis, Ketisha Joseph, Esther Francis and Jade Romain.
