A Beef Week princess to become a Queen as festival kicks off

FOUR beautiful young ladies will grace the opening night stage of the 2015 NCMC Casino Beef Week on Saturday night in the hope of taking out the Beef Week Queen crown.

As the old cliché dictates, there can only be one winner and each contestant is in with an equal chance.

The official opening marks the beginning of the 10-day festival, jam-packed with fun family events and featuring the crowning of the Beef Week Queen.
