Belize City residents lined up this evening on Albert Street to witness the second annual Bowen and Bowen Christmas tree lighting out at the Mule Park and to enjoy a festive evening. With Christmas only 26 days away, Mayor Darrell Bradley told us, what better way to kick-off the season than with a jolly good time on Albert Street.

And if you're having trouble in traffic getting across the city that is because certain streets are blocked off to accommodate the event. Albert Street from Swing Bridge to Church Street will be closed as well as, Orange Street from East Canal to Albert Street.
