Last Saturday 23 boys and 11 girls presented themselves for the election of the children´s queen for next year´s Sant Vicent Ferrer Festivities. This year´s election theme was “Circus” and as there were more boys than girls six pairs had to be formed by boys only. The children´s queen 2017, Leyre Lanáquera accompanied by Saúl Such and her maids of honour Carolina Estivalis with Elias Ivars and Flavia Bocica with José Andrés Ortolà pulled out the first names of the couple who will be part of the royal suite. Pure luck decided on the names and this is how Sofía Barrera with Jordi Ibañez became 2nd maid of honour and Clara Ortolà with Xavi Marrqués became 1st maid of honour. The new children´s queen was received with lots of applause, Paula Llobell accompanied by Diego Gazquez.
The new Fiesta Queen 2018 María Bisquert Vallés accompanied by Marc Dengra, who got quite emotional, got a standing ovation. The president of the Fiesta committee, Isabel Buigues, ended this emotional event which brought quite some surprises with a speech and the fiesta councillor, Rosana Caselles as well as the mayor, Carlos Linares, took the stage to congratulate the new queens.
