Our beautiful island of San Pedro has been invited to participate in a Festival of Culture that will be held in our neighboring city Chetumal, Quintana Roo, Mexico. Mayor Elsa Paz held a small meeting with business executives to formally invite them to participate in this event.

Present at the meeting were representative of the San Pedro Business Association, Belize Tourism Industry Association, Tropic Air, Maya Island and Belize Tourism Board. The Mayor stated that the country of Belize was invited to participate with a special invitation being sent to San Pedro.

The San Pedro Town Council will be representing the island and will be providing entertainment at the festival with San Pedro’s very own Rompe Raja, Will and Dale and the San Pedro Dance Company. Minister Heredia has also promised the participation of the Belize National Dance Company and a steel band as part of Belizean entertainment.

Mayor Paz is extending an open invitation to all business of San Pedro that wish to participate in this culture festival. The designated area for San Pedro/Belize to set up booths and exhibits will be in front of Los Cocos Hotel; the area can accommodate about 15 to 20 booths.
