LUCIA PUENTES URIBE has been crowned the Reina Infantil of Huercal Overa’s fair and festivals for 2014.
Lucia was crowned at a gala held at the Teatro Villa in Huercal Overa. Five candidates had the opportunity to parade like models and don beautiful flamenco dresses. Very quickly the little girls lost their nervousness and performed for the audience. Family and friends who filled the theatre were able to see the girls’ most emotional moments in a video presentation which delighted the attendees.
The winner was chosen by drawing lots. The girls had entered their names on balls that were placed in a bag. Last year’s winner, Esther Fuentes, pulled the winning ball from the bag this year. Mayor of Huercal Overa, Domingo Fernandez, crowned Lucia before congratulating all entrants for their performances. He said: “As you have been unveiled in this gala, you have behaved like real models. I hope that you enjoyed the experience and will take away a nice memory.”
The election of the Queen of the fair and festivals for 2014 will take place on Saturday October 11 at 9pm in a party to be held in the Teatro Villa in Huercal Overa.
