Miss SVG date changed
26.04.2016 - Lyf Compton
The Miss St. Vincent and the Grenadines beauty pageant has seen a date change this year.
This year, the pageant will be held on Saturday June 4th and not on Saturday May 28th as printed on the 2016 promotional view cards issued by the Carnival Development Corporation (CDC).
Chairman of the CDC Dennis Ambrose explained that initially, the Miss SVG show was slated for Saturday May 28, 2016 but after much discussion, which continued beyond printing time, the decision was taken to move the event to Saturday June 4.
"We believe that this new date is a much better one. It gives the local patrons an enhanced opportunity to participate by bringing that show more in line with the salary schedules and therefore makes for greater public involvement", said Ambrose.
