Siam Park hosts Miss Sur hopefuls


The 22 candidates vying for the Miss Sur 2015 title were in Siam Park this week for a formal presentation. They lined up beside local authorities and the park’s newest attraction, “SINGHA”, with a few even taking the opportunity later to try out the new ride which can reach speeds of up to 18 metres per second…

During the presentation the Adeje mayor José Miguel Rodríguez Fraga said, “Miss Sur is  different from other contests of this kind as it also serves to promote the modern image of South Tenerife and reflects growing interest in relevant sectors such as fashion and performance…this is more than a show that seeks to judge on looks, the young women represent young people today, dynamic young women who are studying, who are working in their chosen fields. Miss Sur offers them a host of opportunities as well, and during the run up to the gala they also find out more about the region and all the possibilities it has to offer”.


The mayor said that for that reason the competition was also scheduled to take place during the borough’s annual patronal festivities, as Adeje was a unique place where different perspectives come together for the benefit of all.

The Miss Sur gala will take place on Friday October 16 in the Plaza de España in Adeje, starting at 9.30pm, entry is free.

The 22 candidates are from the all over the south of Tenerife and represent councils and private businesses.
