High expectations as Miss Showgirl entrants wow the crowd
DECADENCE was the flavour of the day as this year's Bundaberg Miss Showgirl entrants dazzled the crowd and helped promote the competition with a special high tea at the Bundaberg Race Club.
Event organiser Chloe Schmidt said yesterday's inaugural afternoon tea had exceeded her expectations with around140 women donning their best attire and enjoying the delicious food on offer.
"We had about 130-140 ladies attend," she said.
"It gave the Showgirl contestants a chance to promote themselves and let the judges meet them for the first time."
Ms Schmidt said five Miss Showgirl entrants and one Rural Ambassador had elected to participate in this year's event but it could be hard to attract girls to the competition so the afternoon tea was also designed to remind people about what the competition was all about.
"It's a really traditional competition and hopefully we can encourage others to enter in the future," she said.
"We've had some great support from some businesses that really helped out today."
One of this year's Miss Showgirl entrants, Brittany Walker said she was excited about the competition and was pleased to see so many ladies turn out to support the event.
"Today has been a lot of fun," she said.
"I'm looking forward to being able to help out and support the community."
The 2013 Bundaberg Miss Showgirl will be announced at he Show Ball on May 17.
