The residents of San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, Belize put on a FANTASTIC parade in commemoration of Belize’s 37th Independence Day celebrations this past weekend. On Friday, September 21, Belizeans all over the country showed off their patriotism in many ways; San Pedro organized one of the most energetic and colorful parades. It was hot, but then it rained, then it was hot once again, but none of this made it any difficult for the revelers to put on a spectacular show full of color, dance and pride for Belize.
The judges for the San Pedro Town Council awarded ABC Preschool first place and The Island Academy second place prizes for the best group floats that impressed the most. Here is a roundup of images from the parade that showcase an island that came together to celebrate as one happy nation.
