MassKara Queen 2016 coronation night set at SMX Convention Center on October 15.
ADMISSION IS FREE.
The MassKara Queen 2016 Coronation Night will be held on October 15, 2016, Saturday, starting at 4:00 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. at the SMX Convention Center in SM City Bacolod.
This good news was announced last October 7 by Dr. Ma. Marcedes Joson, president of the Association of Colleges and Universities of Negros Occidental (ACUNO), this year’s organizer of the MassKara Queen pageant.
Joson said ACUNO and the Silver MassKara Festival Org (SMFO) have partnered with the SMX Convention Center for the pageant venue. Singer Michael Pangilinan will serenade the candidates, while GMA Starstruck 6 Ultimate Survivor winner Migo Adecer will likewise perform in the show.
Tickets to the show will be for FREE, Joson stressed.
Meanwhile, the talent competition was held last Saturday, Oct. 8, at the Robinsons Place Bacolod. The Swimwear competition, on the other hand, was held last Sunday at the Palmas del Mar Conference Resort Hotel.
There will be 11 young ladies vying for the title of MassKara Queen 2016, all representatives from member schools of the ACUNO.
The candidates are Qliczyll Claire Castino of Bacolod City College (BCC), Marie Frances Araneta of La Consolacion College-Bacolod (LCC-B), Dessa Jane Dangallo of the University of Negros Occidental-Recoletos (UNO-R), Janine Pearl Casilao of the Visayan Maritime Academy (VMA), Maria Angela Clarisse Estioko of Riverside College, Valerie Escamilla of John B. Lacson Colleges Foundation (JBLCF), Erika Joille Patayon of Negros Occidental High School (NOHS), Lyka Legaspi of Carlos Hilado Memorial State College-Alijis campus (CHMSC), Georgia Melissa Dacules of Colegio San Agustin-Bacolod (CSA-B), Ancella Denise Anne Pastias of STI-West Negros University (STI-WNU), and Pink Erica Eirene Genolos (CHMSC-Talisay).
The candidates have earlier been presented to the press and bloggers last October 1, the same day of their Question-and-Answer Pre-Judging, where the members of the media chose the candidate for the Darling of the Press award.
This is the first time that ACUNO has partnered with the Silver MassKara Festival Organization, the organizer of the 37th MassKara Festival, for the staging of the MassKara Queen.
