(CNS Local Life): This year’s Pirates Week Festival Queen competition takes place Friday, 10 November, on Harbour Drive, starting at 7:15pm. Contending for the title are Victoria Ebanks (Miss West Bay), Latoya Lightbody (Miss East End), Amanda Hurlston (Miss George Town) and Tracey Barnes-Fagan (Miss Bodden Town). Sponsored by the Ministry of Culture, the costume competition is tailored to women 15 and older and aims to showcase Caymanian culture through design.

Each district elects a young lady as its representative and everyone works together to design a costume. This year’s Pirates Week Festival theme is “Treasures of Change” and costumes will be judged on their design as it relates to that theme. Judges will also look at authenticity, stage presentation, use of Caymanian products and design detail.

The winner will lead the annual day parade, showing off her district’s winning costume to a crowd of more than 12,000 people.
