As part of World Tourism Day celebrations, the Mangochi Tourism Association will crown a beauty queen whose task will be to promote tourism in the lakeside district.
During the celebration to be held at Mlangeni Beach on September 25, one female motivated and passionate about travel and tourism will walk away with the Face of Tourism crown.
“The pageant aims at creating a public figure who will work in the promotion of tourism in the district and get a chance to be a tourism ambassador for the district. She will appear in the district’s tourism promotional materials and get a chance to grace most of the events and tourism activities happening in the district, in the country and even beyond,” said Dennis Imaan, one of the organisers.
World Tourism Day is celebrated annually on September 27 worldwide.
Its purpose is to raise awareness to the international community on the importance of tourism and its social, cultural, political and economic value.
“The event will consequently become annual and will grow with the years. It has been initiated by Mangochi Tourism Association and is being managed by Determination Tourism Consultants, a newly established company aiming at promoting Mangochi Tourism and developing Mangochi as a leading tourism destination in the country,” explained Imaan.
Apart from the beauty contest, other activities include traditional dances, sporting activities like beach soccer and volley ball, canoeing, swimming competitions and live music performances.
