A Fiesta With A Tradition

The SAN JOSE Succotz Fiesta has become a major annual event for the WESTERN village and it is scheduled for April 18, 19 and 21.

But oftentimes, these events become established for a particular symbolic reason, which is lost on the younger generation who look forward to it only for the fun and excitement involved.

The spokesperson for the Fiesta gave 7News a brief history about the importance of the event.

Wilson Patt - Spokesperson, Benque Succotz Fiesta
"Usually for the 'fiesta" we try to promote our own traditional dances and folklore and also the traditional dishes. That is the main focus of the fair. It was done yearly from the 1920ís it was done more as a religious but traditional event. Now its being done like a fundraising drive. We have moved away from the Catholic since the St. Joseph day, the patron Saint is 19th of March and it falls within lent so we have decided to move away from lent and move it into a more traditional way and there isn't a religion that can do any harm."

The Fiesta will be held on the Succcotz Football field, and it will be filled with family oriented activities and an extensive entertainment segment.

San Jose Succotz is a village rich in culture, and the most merriest time to visit is during the feast day of St. Joseph fiestas; apart from the party you can visit one of the most extraordinary archeological site, Xunantunich.(Maiden of the Rock)
