The Jaycees Caribbean Queen Show committee is now moving in full gear with its preparations for the competition slated for 4 Aug. at Carnival City.
Thirteen countries, including Antigua & Barbuda have confirmed their participation in the competition. They are: Barbados, Dominica, Guyana, Jamaica, Trinidad & Tobago, St. Vincent, St. Maarten, Montserrat, Dominican Republic, Tortola, Curacao, St. Croix and host Antigua.
The theme for this yearâ€™s show is â€śSparkling Splendour â€“The Gems of the Caribbeanâ€ť.
A release from the committee said the theme coincides with â€śthe display of Caribbean beauties at its best. â€śA show which has surpassed any other show being hosted in the region, and has been in existence now for 45 unbroken years, is indeed a milestone for the organisation.
A packed itinerary is being put together to include lunches, dinners and island tours for the contestants and their chaperones during their five-day stay on the island. The delegates will also be given the opportunity to interact with the major sponsors during their stay here.
