Reina Internacional del Pacifico is a Mazatlán, Mexico international beauty pageant organized by The Municipal Institute for Culture, Tourism and Art of Mazatlán. [4] From 1990-2018 Esteban Peraza Ramos was the director of the pageant. Lori Lizarraga will be the new director starting in 2019 appointed by the Director general at Instituto de Cultura Mazatlan, Raul Rico Gonzalez. [46] Lori Lizarraga was Reina del Carnaval Internacional de Mazatlan 2014. [47]

The annual pageant takes place during Carnival in Mazatlán where single women who have won a title from the Pacific Coast regions are invited to participate. [12] [36] [40] Delegates attend official events which serves as a platform for visiting queens to learn about the people, history and culture of Mazatlán. Delegates not only learn by viewing but they also participate in historic events and become part of history themselves. [13] The current Reina International del Pacifico 2018 is Guadalupe Adriana Aragon who represented Miss Tourism International in the pageant. [43] [44] [45]
Participation events
Events delegates participate in are the coronation of the King of Joy, Queen of Flores and the Queen of Carnival. They also experience the Naval Combat Fireworks show and ride in two parades. The Inaugural Parade that is sometimes referred to as Carriage Float Parade flows along the Malecon northbound starting at the Fisherman’s Monument. [36] Its sister parade two days later returns the carriage floats to the Centro Historico. [37] The night before the second parade, delegates compete for the title of Reina Internacional del Pacifico. The competition is based on evening gown, national costume and on-stage personal introduction about their native country and their participation in the pageant. [20]
History of Carnival Mazatlan
Mazatlán has the oldest Carnival tradition in Mexico with a history of over a hundred years. [1]  In 1898 a civil committee organized the first city-wide event, the first such in Mexico. [2] The first Carnival queen was Wilfrida Farmer in 1900. [5] [3] The modern-day Mazatlán Carnival combines the best of the history of traditional carnivals with the excitement of modern technology and has various main and cultural events which are designed to appeal to different groups of people. Everything is organized by the city around a different theme each year. [6] The family-oriented events include two parades, a street party with live music, two food festivals, Festival of Lights Fireworks, and the coronation of the Child Queen, King of Joy, Queen of Flores and Queen of Carnival. [7] The Carnival is rich in history and has a Naval Combat Fireworks show which is a dramatization of the defense of Mazatlán during the French Colonial invasion of 1864. [8]
