The pageant contestants ranged from 3 years old to 18 years old, who participated in groups according to their age group. Each was judged by a panel of community members on three different categories.

Throughout the evening, parents, friends, and the audience cheered their pageant candidate with signs and chants. In between presentations the spectators enjoyed the food, folkloric dances and characteristics of culture.
