About Miss Intercontinental
The internationally-estemeed MISS INTERCONTINENTAL Pageant marks 2017 the 46th anniversary, which began in 1971 as a concurrent tourism event on the island of Aruba in the Caribbean. Starting as Teen Pageant, it immediately became an annual event after it attracted strong television ratings following its debut in Oranjestad, Aruba. Some past MISS INTERCONTINENTAL Pageant sites include Cartagena; Colombia; Berlin; Germany; Huangshan; China; Mahe; Seychelles Islands; Minsk; Belarus and Nassau the Bahamas.
