Trail Ambassador Programme Pageant
Friday, May 11, 7pm

Who will wear the crown?  The annual Trail Ambassador Programme pageant is more than a "pageant."  It's a crowd-pleasing production, at the Bailey Theatre, that wraps up the candidates' seven month programme of learning public speaking, resume writing, interview skills, tourism, nutrition and more. Two ambassadors will be chosen (Miss Trail and Trail's Princess) to represent Trail throughout the year. Watch for the newly crowned royalty in the parade the next day.  Tickets at the door or advance online.
