Dia de San Pedro is officially on June 28th, and the San Pedro House of Culture (SPHC), along with The San Pedro Town Council put together a series of activities to celebrate this grand occasion. The annual week-long event honours St. Peter (San Pedro), the Patron Saint of Fishermen of the island, and San Pedranos, along with those who have adopted the island as their home, come together annually to thank their patron for another bountiful year.

Entre los mayas es común que sus celebraciones festivas y tradicionales tengan una esencia pagano-religiosa, ya que aunque la celebración de “la danza de la cabeza de cochino”, es una lúcida danza de aspecto más bien satírica y divertida, esta se realiza frente a la iglesia del pueblo durante las fiestas patronales.

San Pedro starts celebrations for Dia de San Pedro!

The traditional island festivities of the anticipated ‘El Dia de San Pedro,’ have already begun on La Isla Bonita. The activities, which honour St. Peter (San Pedro) the Patron Saint of fishermen on the island, opened early on Thursday, June 29th with a fishermen’s mass at the San Pedro Catholic Church. Following the mass, a traditional fishermen’s breakfast was hosted at the Lions Den, after which, all the fishermen gathered in front of the Central Park for a boat procession that began at the municipal pier at 6AM. At the end of the procession, all boats and fishermen were blessed by Father Scott Giuliani.

A series of fun activities have been planned for the weekend, including photo exhibitions, cultural dance presentations, international performances, sporting events and lots more.
