On Saturday, September 27, 2014, MVNCI hosted our first ever Inter-pageant picnic at Almaden Lake Park – Peppertree in San Jose. It was an opportunity for NorCal pageants to get together and socialize, outside of only seeing each other at pageant events. Luckily, Cindy brought her bright pink canopy to set-up so that guests will be able to easily locate us in the park, and it gave us additional shade as well. Representatives from Miss & Mrs Vietnam USA and Miss Asian Global were in attendance, as well as friends of friends, and even one of our emcees during Pageant, Trami, was able to make it out that day! We had an enjoyable time catching up with each other and meeting new people as we BBQ’ed and ate delicious food. It was a beautiful day out, only made better by glimpses of the scenic lake and gaggles of geese strolling nearby. We had so much fun chatting that we unfortunately didn’t get around to playing any games that we had planned… but at least we will readily have supplies at hand to play these games at another event someday! Thanks to everyone who came, and we hope to host more events like this in the near future!!
