The festival of Dinagyang is a much-celebrated event in Iloilo City, drawing crowds from all over the Philippines and tourists the world over. The main event, the Ati-ati Dance Competition, is the most well-known, but yet another event that is much awaited is the Miss Iloilo Dinagyang 2019 Pre-pageant Night.
The Miss Iloilo Dinagyang 2019 Pre-pageant Night Competition
Fourteen young women from the province of Iloilo vie for the coveted Miss Iloilo Dinagyang 2019 crown and its seven titles:
- Miss Iloilo Dinagyang 2019 Carnival Queen
- Miss Culture
- Miss Industries
- Miss Travel
- Miss Environment
- First Princess
- Second Princess
Those are quite the titles to vie for. And there’s no mistaking it when we say the competition is fierce. During the official launch back in the last month of 2018, Mayor Jose Espinosa III had this to say:
“With much expectation, Dinagyang 2019 will be more colorful, more joyful celebration in giving glory to Sto. Niño. The festival is something we can be proud of, not only in the city, but in the whole country. This is an occasion which can attest the Ilongga’s beauty, talent and intelligence.”
These Ilonggo beauties were first presented to the public during the official launch last December 2, 2018, at SM City.
