lawcucui - Sept. 10 is St. Georges Caye Day - don't know much about it, never been in Belize that time of year.... Here's a direct cut-n-paste from the Ambergriscaye.com website, under the "holidays" heading:
St. Georges Caye Day, National Day
A colourful parade throughout town with an all day fair at Central Park. Live local music on the beach. On September 10, 1798, at St. George's Caye Belize, the British buccaneers fought with the Spaniards over the territory of Belize and won. The tradition of celebrating this victory is still carried on today, and each year a week long calendars of events ranging from religious services to carnivals are held.
The mood in the City and District Towns is upbeat as a throngs of Belizeans from home and abroad, as well as visitors flock the country to participate in the celebrations. On the morning of September 10th, Belizeans and friends of Belize parade through the streets and enjoy local dishes, spirits, and music. The upbeat feeling and festivities continue until September 21st.
Enjoy the holiday and let the rest of the boarders know how it was.
