Stacy Croes is La Cabana’s 2013 Carnival Queen

Eagle Beach – La Cabana Beach & Racquet Club staged an elaborate Carnival event in the Chit Chat Café  including an entertaining Queen Election.

The Queen Election candidates representing various resort departments competed for the coveted title in an animated contest in which Stacy Croes from the Activities department snatched the crown demonstrating her spirit of Carnival, dancing, movin’ and groovin’.

In accordance with local tradition, the assigned Prins and Pancho, also resort associates, helped pick and present the winning queen, as they danced around the candidates, eventually stopping to usher Stacy forward as the new royalty.

The party at the Chit Chat Café also brought the reign of last year’s queen to conclusion as she stepped down to relinquish her crown.

Costumed General Manager Joe Najjar and his decked out management team, thanked those who contributed to the happening and wished the queen much joy on parade as the grand prize consists of complimentary participation in three grand Carnival parades with the colorful group of singer Claudius Phillips, and his award winning band, OREO.
