ITíS BACK! The revival of an old fun tradition that is synonymous with Belizean celebrations. But the Greasy Pole attraction had been on hiatus from our island celebrations for some apparent reason that we are not aware of! For the past couple town celebrations the San Pedro Town Council has managed to bring back the attraction that is The Greasy Pole!

Itís a 30-foot + pole all greased up with cooking lard. On top, a Belizean Flag that is waiting to be fetched; oh and there is a $500 prize for the winning group.
