San Pedro brings in 2017 with a bang!

La Isla Bonita definitely has a reputation for hosting faboulous events, in particular, its New Year’s Eve Countdown. On Saturday, December 31st, hundreds of revelers flocked to the Central Park to bid farewell to 2016, and welcome in 2017.

Organized by the San Pedro Town Council (SPTC), the annual celebration keeps getting bigger and better every year. With live music from the hottest bands and DJ’s, many party favor giveaways, and a spectacular fireworks display, everyone who celebrated the special event enjoyed themselves to the fullest.

The grand party began at 10PM, with musical performances by one of Corozal’s finest—Caribbean Roots. Their upbeat rhythms had everyone dancing as they awaited the big countdown. As midnight drew near, official ceremonies started with a prayer by Pastor Clive Welsh of Lighthouse Christian Radio. Master of Ceremonies Eiden Salazar then called Mayor Daniel Guerrero to the podium to deliver his New Year’s Address.

Guerrero reflected on the past year’s events. From major incidents such as the downtown fire on June 26th to the devastation of Hurricane Earl, there was much loss. He thanked all of the international and local service organizations, along with private stakeholders, for their much-needed contribution and dedication in making a positive difference. Guerrero also outlined plans for 2017 that will see many improvements, which will increase employment, and address current issues on Ambergris Caye such as: the revitalization of the downtown and beach area, a new road artery from San Pablo area to San Pedrito designated to all heavy-duty vehicles, and increased social and cultural activities. Guerrero also stated that this New Year will most likely see San Pedro Town declared as a city. “I am very proud of the work that has been accomplished. We continue to remain engaged with our community…We have hope for 2017, and remain inspired to look forward to the future,” said Guerrero.

The Mayor’s address in just in time to count down, and as the clock struck 12, confetti showered the crowd. Immediately after, a fireworks display illuminated the skies for 20 minutes light show of spectacular lights.

The Cut Creator DJ Outkast straight out of St. Maarten took to the stage bringing his Caribbean and contemporary beats. Everyone danced their way straight into the wee hours of first day of 2017, celebrating a new with enthusiasm and optimism. The New Year’s Countdown was truly a night to remember!

San Pedro Town welcomed the new year with a bang! As you can see in the pictures, town square was filled to its maximum with residents and visitors to bring in the new year 2017. The crowd gathered in front of the stage in anticipation of the countdown, which was conducted by International DJ from St. Maarten, DJ OUTKAST!

"...5-4-3-2-1! HAPPY NEW YEAR!" everyone shouted, followed by a grand fireworks display as the clock struck 12!

DJ Outkast had the people amped up until 2 in the morning playing all the top hits. After DJ Outkast's performance, the crowd kept on going with Caribbean Roots from Corozal up until 4 in the morning with the crowd's favorite musical selection of cumbia, soca, and even modern hits.

The San Pedro Town Council would like to thank everyone who came out to bring in the New Year at the Central Park, and for making this event a successful one.

Special thanks goes out to our Master of Ceremonies, Mr. Eiden Salazar, Mr. Clive Welsh for his blessing, Marisha Thompson, Miss San Pedro 2016-2017, DJ Outkast, Brad Hemmings, John Marsden, Caribbean Roots Band, Mauricio Mejia, Skynet Sounds, Mr. Efrain Guerrero, Mr. Windell Stevens, our SPTC Workmen, Sandy Toes Bar, Bamboo Fence, Pedro's Inn, Tropic Air and everyone who was a part of this magnificent event!

Until next time!
