The crowning of Miss Penticton Queen Valvadette the 64th takes place at the Cleland Theatre Aug. 5 at 7 p.m., the final event of this year’s Miss Penticton competition.

The 11 candidates have already participated in a talent presentation, two panel interviews and a fashion show, with the latest presentation being the speech competition where the girls talked about their personal passions.

They have also participated in many other events in the community and surrounding area over the course of the eight month program, such as canvassing for cancer.

“The candidates have been working hard for the past eight months to reach this point in the program and are very excited as they work on the final stages of preparing for the pageant,” said Naomi Ludington, organizer of the competition.

The candidates will be doing an opening number at this evening’s event, which includes four dances that represent the journey they have been on since they joined the program.

There will also be an evening gown presentation, impromptu questions and the final judgement of who will be the queen and princesses.

The three that are chosen will be participating in the Peach Festival parade Saturday at 10 a.m. on Main Street and Lakeshore Drive.

Organizers are expecting the show to sell out, tickets will be available at the door for $20.
