Carnaval Ends with a Bang, is Major Tourist Attraction
I love this so much, I want to do it every year, commented San Pedro Carnaval Queen Melida Pereira about her participation in the Carnaval Comparsas (street dancing). Why did I not know of all this fun. Melida participated in the comparsas as part of her winning the Mrs. Reina del Carnaval pageant, now on its third year and a welcome staple to the Carnaval celebrations in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, Belize.
And while Melida danced, performed and sang her heart out for three consecutive days, alongside four other comparsa groups, hundreds of tourists who visited the island during the festivities enjoyed the celebrations. We met first-time visitors who were thrilled about the painting and others who have been visiting the island for 20 years now, only during Carnaval because they love the tradition so much.
