BURNT ISLANDS, NL - Burnt Islands hosted a successful Winter Carnival pageant on March 4 at the Orange Lodge.

The children came out one at a time, with the narrator telling the audience each child’s name, hobbies and what the child wanted to be when they grow up. The kids were also asked what would they do if they had a million dollars, and a couple of them showed a huge sweet tooth by saying they would buy a million chocolate bars!

Then there was a surprise event consisting of four women competing for the Miss Burnt Islands title. It was a hard choice, but Debbie Enwood A.K.A “Miss Lucy was crowned "Miss Burnt Islands.” 

The carnival week starts Sunday, March 11.
