My favorite time Belizean holiday too. I don't get there at this time of year, near often enough.

A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?

The Garifuna have a lot of fun with this Holiday. They go out in Boats in a reenactment of their arrival in Belize.Lots of boats out today, drumming and flag waving, having a good time in the rain!.
You can tell who they are and where they are from by their smiles!
