Sixteen year old Marisa Thompson won the hearts of the judges and the audience at the Miss San Pedro Pageant that was held this past Saturday, September 3, 2016, in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, Belize. She shared the stage with five other contestants who put in a great show of beauty, elegance and intelligence as they vied for the coveted crown.
The pageant was broken down into the traditional cultural, swimsuit and evening gown competitions and included entertainment by Grupo Crash from El Salvador and a dance presentation by seven past Miss San Pedro Queens.
Miss Lisandra Novelo was selected as first runner-up while Marleni Diaz was awarded Miss Photogenic and Karina Requena was awarded Miss Congeniality. Other contestants included Heidi Sorto and Beverly Rodriguez. Outgoing Miss San Pedro 2015 Iris Salgero was present during the pageant to give her farewell speech and assist with the sashing.
Congratulations to Marisha Thompson who will be officially crowned as the new Miss San Pedro on Saturday, September 10, during the St. George’s Caye Day celebrations. Ambergris Today aired the Miss San Pedro Pageant LIVE on Facebook and can be viewed below:
