Las Doñas De La Corte
Las Doñas de la Corte is proud to present “The Court of Rarities, Curiosities and Wonders” on May 1, 2014, 7:30 pm at the American Bank Center, Selena Auditorium. The Coronation Pageant is one of the highlights of the city-wide celebration of Buccaneer Days. This year marks the 61st year of the elaborate Coronation rich in South Texas tradition and glorious pageantry honoring local families and families from around the state.
Each Duchess will be adorned in a magnificent hand tailored costume, which will showcase a collection of nature’s most unique and extraordinary phenomenons. The Duchess trains will serve as landscapes depicting these rare and curious wonders living in the world around us. Inspiration for this theme emerged through the palette of vibrant colors and intricate details held by the marvels of nature, oftentimes overlooked or those so rare, few have seen.
The Coronation Pageant will begin at 7:30 P.M., followed immediately by the Coronation Reception, which will be held upstairs in the Henry Garrett Ball Room, where guests will have an opportunity to greet the Duchesses, the Royalty and their families. Light hors-d'oeuvres will be served and a cash bar will be available.
