Following preliminary rounds held at the various town halls in the Tweed, tomorrow night's event will bring together all finanlists, including:

Miss Uki - Marjorie Lemaire

Miss Tumbulgum - Sarah Bullus

Miss Tyalgum - Hannah Johnston

Miss Bilambil - Lauren Wilson

The 10 finalists will vie for a special gift plus $100 first prize, as well as the honour of leading the Miss Tweed Ball dance at next year's final.

The winners of the Tiny Tot, Tiny Tot Beau, Junior Miss, Junior Beau, Matron and Senior Beau will also be announced on the night.

Miss Tweed stalwart Dot Lever said the event was a great night out and everyone was welcome.

Music would be provided by local band Trilogy and guests would have the opportunity to do some Old Time and New Vogue dancing.

"Nobody cares if you can't dance, just get up and have a go," Mrs Lever said.

Matron of the Tweed 2011 Robin Lemaire said the evening was a family event and a really good opportunity to learn some easy ballroom dances and socialise with nice country people.

"It's also a great lesson in how to socialise for the little ones," Ms Lemaire said.

The evening starts at 8.00pm and judging for the title will take place at 9.00pm after which the dance floor will be the place to be until the band plays the last song of the evening at midnight.

Cost of the evening, which includes supper, is $12 for adults, $6 for 13 to 17year olds and $3 for those under 13.
