Who Is Queen Isabella?
Our Queen Isabella is an outstanding Italian-American young woman. She symbolizes our community in her dreams, ambitions, and ideals. She will represent the Board of Directors and Italian Heritage Parade and our community throughout the year at various functions and events .
How is Queen Isabella selected?
A panel of judges in an interview setting chooses Queen Isabella. They are looking for poise, personality, grace, community involvement and pride in her heritage. The outgoing court will serve until the crowning of the new queen at the Italian Heritage Grand Ball in San Francisco.
What does it mean to be Queen Isabella?
Queen Isabella is the primary focal point of the Italian Heritage Parade. She should recognize and represent the ideals of the Italian-American community – hard work, the importance of family and religion, and a love of life. Former Queens and their Courts look upon the experience as unforgettable and once-in-a-lifetime. Simply portraying a member of the Court lends itself to feeling regal.
