Caye Caulker’s New Miss Lobster Fest Crowned
This weekend everybody visited “la Isla Cariñosa” Caye Caulker for the annual Lobster Fest. Friday, June 26 the festivities kicked off with the selection of Miss Lobster Fest 2015.
The Palapa Gardens set the venue for the pageant as four lovely girls took on the stage vying for the crown of Miss Lobster Fest. These four island local beauties Aricelli Cadle, Alessa Madrill, Leah Canto and Shayenn Magaña graced the stage with their amazing cultural costumes, dance numbers and skit presentations. The pageant had some great entertainment by singer Julianie Ferguson and dance presentations by the Belize National Dance Company.
At the end of the night Caye Caulker crowned their new beauty ambassador Aricelli Cadle - Miss Lobster Fest 2015. Congratulations to the four lovely contestants for their excellent work on stage and also a huge thanks to the entire team of the Caye Caulker Lobster Fest Committee for another successful pageant.
The Commission hired local artist Pablito Guerrero to paint these child-friendly HIV/AIDS awareness messages to strengthen their educational campaign in the community.

Caye Caulker’s 2015 Lobsterfest Is A Total Island Celebration
Caye Caulker is small enough and their Lobsterfest (THE ORIGINAL BELIZE FESTIVAL) is big enough so that it seems to take over the whole island. Sun and sand, gorgeous water and swimming kids, loud music, dancing and tons of food and drink – there is something for everyone and it’s a full family affair.
Since I took MANY MANY pictures…both of the candy colored caye charm ones and the Lobster Festival + Caye Caulker cuteness ones…here are photos of the Festival. More tomorrow.
I arrived earlier than most of the crowds…on the 10am full water taxi out of San Pedro.
For those who have not been to Caye Caulker, it is the divide in the island…BRILLIANT BLUE…and the location of the Lazy Lizard Bar. Aerial view of Caye Caulker taken by Danielle Burruss.
