Haunted and Hot the Halloween Celebrations Continue It is not uncommon for some local businesses to do an annual event for a particular cause. This is the case with Wayo’s Haunted beach house. Every year they make a big party with a haunted house on the beach to raise money for a charity. This year the party spanned two evenings, although Thursday was pretty much a “dress rehearsal” and final set up.
I wanted to go to Wayo’s this year but was unable to get there. I even saw Lara on her way last night and she did a rolling stop to ask if I was going. I told her I had other plans and continued riding south to home. Unfortunately not long after I got home my plans were cancelled to cancelled due to the other persons work issues surrounding a big upcoming wedding.
Seciond day of the 2 day affair I could not go as last night was Red Cross Crazy Canucks Trivia night, I was there to represent San Pedro Branch. Thankfully Shirlee and George were planning to attend Wayo’s and she said they would get a few pics for me to help promote it.
Halloween in San Pedro, Belize, 2015: It’s Not to Be Missed – Part One Last night was a beauty…warm, rainless and BUSY! The town was hoping with parties everywhere, the Prime Minister of Belize, Dean Barrow, giving a pre-election speech in Central Park (on Halloween! in San Pedro!), fireworks and everyone out and about celebrating.
My friend Steve, owner of Lola’s Pub and co-owner of the new this season Stax Sunset Lounge & Cafe at Hol Chan Resort & Villas took some amazing photos of the goings-on…and shared them with me at 2:03am. I was…fast asleep. THANKS STEVE!
Trashing Halloween in San Pedro is a barrel of laughs We totally trashed Halloween this year.
No, I didn’t say we got trashed. I said we trashed Halloween.
As in garbage.
It is a big topic on the island these days because it is a big problem. As one guy would say, “Trash is huuuge!”
So, to bring awareness to the problem, our First Friday Tres Cocos Roadside Trash Pick-up group decided to bring the trash to the people.
Rose, Linda, Marie, Sue made beautiful gowns out of trash bags, Belikin beer tops, Crystal water bottles and the like. Thank you, especially, Bowen & Bowen for providing inspiration through all your disposable products which can be found on streets, lagoons, beaches and vacant lots all over Ambergris Caye. Christina dropped in as a very green Fairy Garbage Mother.
The rest of the gang — Scott & Susan, Steve, Carmen and Wayne — went as trash cans. Not any trash cans. Reproductions of the ones that the San Pedro Town Council has promised us will be distributed north of the Sir Barry Bowen Bridge.

Halloween Party Selfies on Fleek at Holiday Hotel Bash It was that time again for all the witches, mermaids, vampires and many more walk down the orange carpet at the annual Halloween Party inside Holiday Hotel.
On Saturday, October 31, 2015, hundreds of spectators outside Holiday Hotel and those inside the party celebrated and enjoyed some of the most oustanding, funny and scary costumes that walked the island during the spookiest night of the year. It was a great halloween party to remember and most definitley full of selfie taking. Gerry Badillo of Ambergris Today (our selfie specialist) was on the scene to capture some of the best moments of the night.
Holiday Halloween Mashup My night started out with pre party. Kendall had invited Lisa, Ronnie and a few others over. I donned my costume and was going to called my new regular taxi driver when Cowboy Doug texted me to come to Banana Beach and I then I could score a ride to town.
The annual Holiday Hotel party is always a chart topper and this year, while the general public did not go as all out as usual, Jurassic park made the night. When Eiden announced a late comer, Jurassic theme music started to play and a 15 foot or so Dinosaur complete with scientists and guards holding ak47’s came through the door it was a jaw dropping show stopper.
