The facilities of Orca Ocean in Loro Parque, have this morning, Friday July 12, hosted the official presentation of Miss North 2019, which will take place on Thursday August 1 in the borough of Los Realejos, in an event framed within the extensive program of the Fiestas del Carmen of that town.
In this edition of the contest a total of 23 contenders will participate. They were presented in the zoo that is recognised as the best in the world in the presence of José David Cabrera and Carolina Toste, respectively the Los Realejos Councillors for Fiestas and Tourism, and Sandro Pérgola, Director of Miss North.
During the press conference, Pergola stressed that, thanks to the sum and strength of their two events, Miss North and Miss South, they have managed to bring together 28 of 31 municipalities on the island of Tenerife, which have decided to firmly back the aforementioned events together with numerous private companies.
“It’s much more than just a conventional beauty pageant. We have been demonstrating this for many years. Our dynamics in organising the event with its multiple activities clearly mark the difference from other contests. Everyone knows Miss North, it’s a brand that was already firmly established by the late 90’s” said Pergola.
This year’s gala will be held at the Plaza San Agustín de Los Realejos, on Thursday 1 August from 9.30pm. The crowd capacity of this edition is limited and entry is by invitation only. The invitations will be given in exchange for receipts for purchases made in the ‘comercios con corazon’ (stores with heart) of Los Realejos.
This municipality has five main shopping areas (La Cruz Santa, Icod el Alto, Realejo Alto, San Agustín and Toscal Longuera) “And this is a formula that will ensure that in the days running up to the gala, the Miss North event will encourage the spending of over €5,000 in our shops among those seeking to obtain an invitation, as it’s the only formula to access the venue with a maximum of 500 invitations available” according to recent statements by the Mayor of Los Realejos, Manuel Dominguez.
“We are aware that young people from this and other municipalities in the region are taking part, which generates expectation and the desire to share this special night with family and friends, who will want to be present and therefore must necessarily have enjoyed the commercial offer of Los Realejos to obtain an invitation, an initiative that we have already used successfully in other similar events, being well valued by local businesses” he added.
