Today is the big day! Who will it be, our new Miss Vietnam of Northern California 2015? If you don’t already have your tickets, unfortunately you can’t go this year. It was sold out weeks in advanced. The new queen will received $5,000, gifts and a year to represent our Vietnamese community in Northern CA.
Good luck to all the contestants! You’ve worked so hard attending practices in past months. We are down to the final hour; however, friendships last a lifetime. We hope you’ve enjoyed your “pageant” experience with us and will come back to visit, to help or even as contestants. Who knows!
Here are some fun facts: Most of our queens entered our pageant once and won. A few entered twice and then won, but there was one contestant who entered three times. Call it however you want, but we admire her sheer determination. She wanted something really badly and she didn’t give up! Needless to say, third time is a charm and she took home the title. To this day we have 28 beautiful queens and 168 princesses in our growing pageant family. If you want to be apart of the fun and love (and also be a part of the community, because our pageant is known for our highly active role in community service), apply for next year’s pageant. Online application for the 2016 pageant is now open, until December 2015.
