Miss Tayasan 2017
Municipality of Tayasan – Negros Oriental
Our visit in the municipality of Tayasan would not be complete without the Miss Tayasan 2017 beauty pageant. This event was held one day after the Tayasan Festival, so there was not much time to rest. However, the gym of the municipality was jampacked and many could not get a seat anymore and followed the event standing.
Eight candidates were competing for the crown of Miss Tayasan 2017. The contestants came all from different barangays of the municipality. That way each of them had plenty of supporters in the audience cheering their hearts out for their favorites.
After the last VIP had finally arrived the show started with the production number. The eight lovely ladies entered the stage in their colorful festival costumes to present themselves to the enthusiastic audience.
The gods of beauty-pageants obviously listened to our prayers and spared us and the audience the dreadful talent-round. Very wise decision of the organizers to skip it, and rather have an intermission number more where some talented local artists and dancers entertained the VIPs, VUPs and the whole crowd.
The next round brought the ladies back on stage in, what was called, play/wear. Now, as the tastes of color-combinations are different, we are convinced there are some people who liked the attire. The eight candidates made the best out of it and showed that they know how to move on a big stage with thousands of eyes glued on them.
Last but not least grace and beauty rose was shining bright in the municipality gym when the eight lovely contestants entered the stage in their evening gowns for the all deciding round of the Miss Tayasan 2017 pageant. It was past midnight when the judges reached their decision who would be the new queen of the municipality of Tayasan,
