Mexico Beauty Queens in Sinaloa
In this Jan. 26, 2013 photo, dancers watch from backstage as young women compete in the "Guamuchil Carnival Queen 2013" beauty contest in Guamuchil, Sinaloa state, Mexico. Residents packed the local theater filled with banners and posters advertising the queens and filled the aisles and stairways with extra chairs after the seats filled. The town has produced at least a Miss Mexico and more recently prides itself in saying the runner up to Miss World 2009 is a native. (AP Photo/Eduardo Verdugo)
