5. Miss Anguilla Queens Pageant
August Thursday continues with the Miss Anguilla Beauty Pageant at Landsome Bowl in the Valley. From the time you turn off The Valley Road the streets will be lined with cars until you reach The Village so be sure to get there in time for this prestigious competition between some the most talented and beautiful women in Anguilla. The seeds of this pageant began when Anguilla was connected to St. Kitts and Nevis as the Statehood Queen Show, but the pageant took on its current form after the 1967 revolution, and has been celebrated since the first carnival.
