Tomorrow will mark the beginning of one of the north’s biggest festivity as the San Joaquin Fiesta comes alive in the Corozal District. It will be the 46th annual San Joaquin Fiesta and for all those who enjoy a Spanish style fiesta, then San Joaquin Village will be the perfect place to be this Thursday, August 16th to Sunday, August 19th as the celebration sets the weekend a blaze. The Fiesta is in celebration of the village’s patron saint: San Joaquin.
The festivity commences tomorrow with a Novena and a mass at the San Joaquin Catholic Church, after which, cultural presentations and mechanical rides will put everyone in the festive mood. On Friday August 17th the official opening ceremonies will take place at the San Joaquin Park. Saturday night, the park will play venue to a variety of cultural presentations highlighting the cultures of Northern Belize. Later on visitors will be treated with the energetic music of the mighty Gilharry 7 Band and on Sunday night Supa G and Gilharry 7 will both take to the stage as they close out the weekend festivities.
