TWO WOMEN from Mijas have represented the town in Costa del Sol beauty contest, Miss Grand Malaga.
Tamara Vera, Councillor for Festivals, said, “both women were in contact with the council after reaching the final of the event, so we decided to meet them to show our support.” She added, “these types of events are another way to promote our town and we hope the girls enjoy their day.”
