2014 Lobster Fest is a go!

With the opening of lobster season fast approaching, dates have been set for the highly anticipated 2014 San Pedro Lobster Fest. The San Pedro Lobster Festival Committee has officially announced that Lobster Fest will be held from June 14th to the 21st. This year the festival will be bigger and better the than ever before. The weeklong festival will see revelers enjoying the tasty treats of the sea- courtesy of the Spiny Lobster- at various establishments on the island. As an added bonus, visitors will also have the opportunity of winning a grand vacation package by using their 2014 Lobster Fest Passport.

Businesses wanting to register for the 2014 Lobster Fest Passport must do so by Friday, May 9th and only a couple spaces are left. The passport is part of the Lobster Crawl, where lobster fest goers visit participating businesses to acquire passport stamps. Each stamp in the passport can be converted into a ticket for the Grand Lobster Fest Raffle. The lucky winner of the raffle will receive the ultimate vacation package which will include local airfares, hotel stays, golf cart rentals, tours, bar tabs, lunch/dinner tabs and more. Stamps can be traded in for tickets at the San Pedro Lobster Festival Committee booth on the night of the block party.

The highlight of the festival is the grand block party held at Central Park. End the festival by enjoying a variety of finger licking lobster dishes, not to mention live music by Super G and Panarific Steel Band to name just a few of the entertainers. It truly is a wonderful family affair. Booth registration for the block party can be done at the Seaduced Office for a fee $500. The committee reminds all businesses that booths are given on a ‘come first’ basis and quantities are limited, so interested businesses are encouraged to register as soon as possible.

So mark your calendars because this is a Lobster Fest you won’t want miss! For more information on the event contact Rebecca Arceo at email adventureinbelize@gmail.com or call 226-2254.

San Pedro Lobsterfest Nightlife comes to life with lots to eat, drink and dance

Ambergris Today


San Pedro Lobster Fest draws large multitude to the island
On Saturday June 21st, hundreds of residents and visitors flocked to the island’s Central Park for the annual San Pedro Lobster Fest Block Party. A total of 15 booths hosted some of San Pedro’s top restaurants, all offering lobster prepared in a variety of delicious ways. To complement the great food, visitors were also treated to a taste of Belize’s music with a bit of live steel band and punta music. From early in the evening, visitors swarmed the various tents to get their hands on some succulent and sweet crustaceans. There were lobster hotdogs, lobster empanadas, lobster risotto, lobster lettuce wraps, lobster burgers, lobster kebabs, lobster pizzas, lobster enchiladas and even lobster waffles; truly lobster was available every which way. Equally abundant were tropical drinks, even lobster margaritas. While offering an array of lobster dishes to customers, the booths also worked hard to convince a panel of judges who were tasked to select the Best Lobster Dish, the Best Lobster Drink and the Best Lobster Themed Booth. After satisfying their taste buds, the judges selected the following as the winners.


Eat More Lobster at San Pedro Lobster Fest
Another successful San Pedro Lobster Festival is in the books as an entire week of celebrations at select restaurants offering special lobster dishes and great entertainment kicked off last week with the opening of lobster season in Belize. The Lobster Crawl culminated at the massive Lobster Fest Block Party held at Central Park in downtown San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, Belize, on Saturday, June 21. Lobster dishes started rolling out as early as 5p.m. as visitors and locals wanted to take advantage of the special prices and special lobster dishes local restaurants presented at their individual boots. Later in the evening you had to wait at least 30 minutes at most food booths to get your order; the lines were that long.

Big Block Party San Pedro Lobsterfest 2014
Crawlers finished their week long marathon around the island with a bang at the big block party for San Pedro Lobsterfest 2014. The welcome speech was scheduled at 4:45, but that did not stop people from coming out early to watch booths being set up and be first in line for a multitude of scrummy lobster treats. After enjoying world famous San Pedro spiny lobster, party goers kept the party going with delicious lobster themed cocktails and ice cold Belikin beer. If you missed it this one and are thinking about San Pedro lobsterfest 2015 (like a few people I know), the 2014 block party line up on the San Pedro Lobster Festival facebook page will help convince you to start planning for next year. Some first timers come for part of the festival and do not book themselves on the island for for the best part – the big street party. A quick glance at June 2015 calendar shows the block party will likely be Saturday June 20th. Stay tuned to The official San Pedro Lobsterfest website for Lobsterfest 2015 dates and schedule of the weeks events. You can see more party pictures on the San Pedro Lobster Festival facebook page photo stream.

From: Rebecca Arceo

Hey everyone we have been making an effort to thank all of the people that helped make this years Festival possible but I personally wanted to take a moment to say thank everyone that helped make Lobster Festival 2014 a great success. Our first Lobster Festival was in June 2007. In the last 7 years I have seen this event grow and develop into something that we can be very proud of as a community. This year I was particularly proud. The restaurants pushed themselves to be even more creative and we had some of the best food ever, from Lobster Sausages and Lobster Pops to Lobster Ravioli and Lobster Wontons just to name a few, the food was spectacular. I was also proud of the time and effort everyone put into decorating their booths. Finally I am proud of clean up team for helping keep "La Isla Bonita" clean during that block. Saturday night as I looked out at the crowd and saw young and old, residents and visitors, new faces and returning guests I saw a very happy crowd eating, drinking and enjoying San Pedro! It was a proud moment not for me as an organizer but for all of us as a community. See you next year for Lobster Festival 2015.

A VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU TO A VERY SPECIAL LADY

Having been in on the San Pedro Lobster Festival from its beginning seven years ago, it is without a doubt one of the most challenging, rigorous, and fun event in San Pedro. Since its inception by a few of us seven years ago, we managed to be creative, make do, stretch the limits, and fill in the blanks to make it all happen.

What many of us know and often forget to acknowledge is: The integral part of the San Pedro Lobster Festival is Rebecca Arceo. She does not get paid, she manages, somehow to make all the cogs fit the wheel, to orchestrate the best concerto written, to line up people, places and things that make the event fun for locals, families, and tourists alike. She is batting 1,000 since that first year when she needed to figure out how to light the booths, how to get businesses interested, how to block off the street, how to clean up the mess and a multitude of other jobs that no one but the committee knows about.

Anyone on the committee this year or since its inception seven years ago knows and feels this event could not have been done without the leadership of Rebecca. Lobster hats off to you Rebecca. The five most important words in the English language are “you did a good job”. And you have been doing a great job for seven years. We all thank you for your love of San Pedro and your dedication all these years. We’ve known it and thought all of these many years and simply need you to know that we thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

The San Pedro Lobster Committee gang
Letter to the Editor, San Pedro Sun
