This year marks the 27th anniversary of Township for our beautiful Isla Bonita and according to the San Pedro Town Council, it will be celebrated with grandeur and will be a family event for all to enjoy on November 27, 2011.
To kick off the celebration for township this year the official inauguration of Lagoon Street (road from Richie’s Supermarket to Boca del Rio Bridge) will take place, followed by a grand parade through the main streets of San Pedro culminating at Central Park for official township ceremony.
All schools are invited to participate in the parade and are asked to depict the lifestyle of San Pedro as that of 27 years ago when it was known as a quaint fishing village. There will be cash prizes for schools for the best float and organized theme for those who participate in the parade.
After the parade an official ceremony will take place at the Central Park where the Town Council has prepared a family fun-filled event. After official speeches and special recognition given to those who took part in the development of the town, there will be performances to enjoy by the local dance groups.
A marching band from Mexico will also provide entertainment and there will be lots of fun activities for the children, a special presentation by Belizean musical sensation Super G and a grand fireworks display.
Township Day 2011 an event not to be missed! Let us all celebrate in grand, Que Viva San Pedro!
