Eight lovely young ladies will compete for the coveted title of Miss Central Trinidad when the Couva Carnival Committee (CCC) hosts its queen pageant at the Couva Car Park on Saturday, starting at 7 p.m.

The contestants were introduced to their sponsors at a function at the Couva/Point Lisas Chamber of Commerce head office, Camden Road, Couva, last Friday. The queen will receive a first prize of $6,000, with first runner-up $4,000 and third place, $2,500.

The contestants are: Rene Brown (Miss Ramken Contractors Ltd); Michelle Grey (Miss Stonehouse Marketing); Tia Toby (Miss Deja Vous); Isha Thomas (Miss Couva/Tabaquite/Talparo Regional Corporation); Lenore Singh (Miss Chinpire Contracting Services Ltd.); Layoya Cummings (Miss Councillor Allan 'Taxi' Seepersad); Arielle Collins (Miss Amcoweld Engineering Services Ltd.); and Santoshi Bachoo (Miss Salana and Inshan Landscaping).

The Central Trinidad Queen Pageant is the marquee event of the week-long pre-Carnival celebrations in Couva, attracting thousands of patrons at the Couva Car Park, recognised as the Couva Carnival Centre for decades.

CCC chairman Ramchand Rajbal Maraj thanked the sponsors for investing in Couva Carnival, adding that their support was vital to its continuing success.

Meanwhile, celebrations in Couva kick off on Wednesday at 7 p.m., with Chutney Explosion, featuring renowned tassa band Double Vibrations.
