Sapphire Queen contestants called to join 60 year celebration

SAPPHIRE QUEEN: Mikaela Hill will relinquish the Sapphire City Queen to the 2016 winner at the Sapphire City Festival this year.YOUNG women with royal aspirations are invited to enter this year’s Sapphire City Queens and Princesses competition. Celebrating its 60th year, the 2016 Sapphire City Festival will be the biggest yet, and committee member Ann Clydsdale said the entrants will be more involved in the month-long celebration.

“It’s a chance for the girls to meet other girls, go to a few places they might not normally go to, get dressed up and have a bit of fun,” she said. In honour of the festival’s 60th year, an as yet unnamed special prize will be up for grabs in the queens competition.

The nominees will be judged on how they interact with the public during festival events and appropriate presentation. Queens will be quizzed on local knowledge and princesses their personal interests. Ann said queens and princesses won’t have a challenging role, and it will be all about having fun.

The young monarchs will be presented to Inverell at the new Mayor’s Ball, to be held in the Town Hall in early October. Local favourites such as Inverell’s Got Talent and Communicator of the Year will be on once again, with well-loved entertainer Jim Haynes set to return to town for the Poets Breakfast. The annual parade will have a ‘back to the 60s’ theme, and Ann promises some big-name entertainment is on the way for both adults and children.

Women aged 17-24 years are eligible to become queen entrants, with princesses ranging from 13-16 years. To enter, visit the Inverell Tourist Information Centre or call 6728 8161. Any local organisations with events planned for the month of October are also invited to contact the centre to join in the festival agenda.
