Belize at 35: Strong and Together as One!

Ambergris Caye joined the thousands of Belizeans countrywide in celebrating the 35th anniversary of Belize’s Independence. The patriotic festivities began with the official Independence Eve and midnight flag raising ceremonies on Tuesday, September 20th at the Honourable Louis Sylvestre Sports Complex. The celebrations concluded on Independence Day, Wednesday, September 21st with a spectacular parade through the main streets of San Pedro Town, ending at the Central Park with Gilharry 7 Band keeping the celebratory atmosphere into the night.

Following the speeches, the island’s beauty ambassador Miss San Pedro Marisha Thompson was escorted by Deputy Mayor Gary Greif and the San Pedro High School Marching Band. This paved the way for the midnight flag raising ceremony and 21 gun salute, wherein elements of the Belize Coast Guard marched in led by Parade Commanding Officer Lennan Thomas. Inspection of the Guard of Honor was done by Mayor Guerrero and Honorable Heredia. 2016-independence-day-eve-celebrations-14A few minutes after, the Belize National Anthem resonated and the patriotic crowd joined in singing as the Belizean flag was being raised. At midnight, the Coast Guard gave a 21 gun salute as Guerrero and Heredia conducted the traditional ‘Grito’ (shout) of Independence. A spectacular fireworks display followed, lasting about 40 minutes. The jubilant crowd remained at the Sports Complex as Gilharry 7 Band serenaded the early hour of September 21st.

Why You MUST Be in Belize on September 21st! The San Pedro JUMP UP Parade!

Good grief! Is it possible to have a parade hangover? No, no. I didn’t down rum punch and Belikin, only water but the heat! The amazing energy! THE HEAT! 2016’s San Pedro Jump Up Parade for Belize’s 35th Year of Independence may not have been the longest ever but it was fantastic. And I took many many pictures…

This year the parade was set to jump off at 10am…and after the late night, the 21 gun salute in town and the HUGE midnight fireworks…the site of the previous night’s event…

…you can imagine things were running a bit late. I think 11:20am was the time…

It gave me PLENTY of time to take lots of photos at the line-up.

I’m just going to keep them coming fast and furious. From the beginning of the line-up to the AMAZING end and the Mystic Mas group.

More photos from Belize’s 35th Birthday Party in San Pedro. Did I mention that it was HOT? I’m giving you all my photos because, well, I worked hard for them. The temperature may have been 89 degrees at noon but the real feel? Accuweather tells me it was 110. And I BELIEVE! Blistered feet, a crazy sunburn and…some sort of heat exhaustion that make me…well a bit sick. Was it worth it?
