San Pedro Town Council brings Christmas Cheers to the children of San Pedro
The San Pedro Town Council, led by Mayor Daniel Guerrero, was busy on Friday afternoon December 20th, giving out gifts to the children of San Pedro Town. Joining the mayor on his Christmas ‘sleigh’ were elves (councilors) Kenrick Brackett and Wally Nuñez as well as members of the San Pedro Traffic Department and a few other volunteers. Santa (Mayor Guerrero) first directed his reindeer to San Mateo where over 500 gifts were distributed to the children in the area. There were gifts for boys and girls of all ages: from the small babes in arms as well as young teenagers. The happy children smiled as they each got a gift courtesy of the San Pedro Town Council.

Sweet Pain rocks the palapa at Fido’s
Fido’s Courtyard was the place to be on Saturday December 21st, as fans from all over the island gathered to attend the Pre Christmas Cultural Concert. For a cover charge of $20, fans got to enjoy a night filled with live punta music, from Dangriga’s Sweet Pain Band, whose performance was their debut show in San Pedro Town. The band played right into the wee hours of the morning, as the crowd danced the night away. And of course there was no shortage of drinks as the Fido’s bar kept the drinks coming all night long. Congratulations to Fido’s for hosting yet another great show and to Sweet Pain Band for delivering a night filled with great music.

San Pedro Lions and Leos spread more Christmas Cheer
With the Christmas holidays in full swing, the San Pedro Lions and Leos Club were out in San Pedro Town on Sunday, December 22nd spreading some Christmas cheer with their annual Christmas Caroling. The caroling started at Boca del Rio Park, and as the carolers made their way through Laguna Drive heading to the town core, children ran up to them. Of course the Lions did not come empty handed, and they handed out sweets and apples to the crowd. Isn’t Christmas Caroling without some music however, and Rompe Raja was present, bringing classic Christmas carols to life with an island twist. All the families of the area were happy to share the Christmas spirit and even joined along in the merry parade.
