Local beauties vie for crown

IT WILL be glitz and glamour aplenty at the Meropa Casino in Polokwane tomorrow when 15 of Limpopo's most gorgeous babes compete for the prestigious Princess of Limpopo 2009 title.

The girls will take the stage from 7pm until the wee hours of Sunday.

Pageant organiser Hlami Gudlhuza of Hlamala Events said yesterday that girls, between the ages of 20 and 25, were selected from the province's five regions.

"Natural beauty, height, costume, intellect and knowledge of the province will help the contestants to scoop the coveted prizes," she said.

Gudlhuza said most of the contestants had previously participated in a number of modelling contests within and beyond the province.

The pageant is sponsored by Limpopo Business of Support Agency, Incredible Connection, Perfect Turn and SAB, among others.

Entrance fee to the VIP area is R150 and normal seats will cost R50.
