Miss Dumaguete 2014 – Coronation Night

The Miss Dumaguete 2014 Coronation Night took place as on of the main-events of the 2014 Sandurot Festival. Once again the Dumaguete Convention Center was chosen as a venue, and once again the delay was extraordinary. The main task of the event was to find the successor of Lorraine Kendrickson -Miss Dumaguete 2013- who represented the City of Gentle People most successful at the Miss World – Philippines Pageant.

The “Who-is-Who” of Dumaguete was in full numbers present, completed with other VIPs of the national show- and business sector. Reading their names, glorious achievements and curriculum vitae plus all sponsors took more time than the seven candidates spend on stage to present themselves to the board of judges and the audience. Following a view pictures of some of the honorable guests of this event.

Finally it was time to start the Miss Dumaguete 2014 Coronation Night with the production number.

Miss Dumaguete 2014 Candidates in Swimsuits

“History repeats itself” must have been the theme of the swimsuit round. The candidates were wearing bathing suits which obviously reassembled the style of the 60s and reminded one of our team-members strongly of the beach wear his grandma was wearing back in the early 70s

The gowns were also held in a greyish silver, so it appeared, that the overall theme of the event-planner was more directed towards the 70s instead of the modern woman of the 21st century.

Finally the show got to its highlight, the announcing of the different awards and the new Miss Dumaguete

Miss Dumaguete 2014 – Talent Night

Last night November 16, 2014 was the Pre – Pageant of Miss Dumaguete 2014 on the big stage in Quezon park. The weather was on the side of the organizers and thousands of Dumagueteños waited patiently for the VIPs to arrive, so that the Talent Night or Pre – Pageant night (how it is better called due to lack of talents) could finally start. Mayor, counselors, sponsors and many more or less noteworthy people filled the first rows in the audience. Here some pictures of them mixed with some shots before the show started.



Finally the Miss Dumaguete 2014 Pre-Pageant night got on its way with the prayers and national anthem before the candidates entered the stage in their red-hot Flamenco costumes.

Next was the talent round, or what the handlers thought the candidates are good in.

After two intermission numbers, the candidates slipped back into their Flamenco outfit and repeated their performance of the beginning of the show for a second time. Now it was time for the judges to calculate the scores and give the first awards.

Way Back in the 1920’s,Dumaguete already chose Queens or muse and they were called Miss Dumaguete Carnival Queen.

On November 24, 1948, after the war, and when Dumaguete City officially became a City, Miss Isabelita Ruperto was declared the first Miss Dumaguete. In the succeeding years up to the present, along line of beauteous ladies have held the prestigious title of Miss Dumaguete, like Rowena Tiempo, Carmen Gonzalez, Lolita Bejar, Girlie Ererio, and Lina Tramonte.

In 2012 the height requirement for candidates for Miss Dumaguete was raised at 5”5, adapted from Binibining Pilipinas criteria, which made it possible for Miss Dumaguete 2013, Lorraine Kendrickson to compete in the Miss World Philippines and won 1st Runner-up.
