It was a packed house at Palapa Bar and Grill this past Sunday, October 29, as the Saga Humane Society of San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, Belize, held its annual 14th Annual Spooktacular Halloween Party and Costume Contest. It was a family fun-filled event where man's best friend was the main attraction. Island residents got their canine friends in costumes and celebrated along with Saga to help raise funds for the organization. A panel of judges assisted in awarding prizes for Most Original Costume, Scariest, Funniest, Best Look-alike and Best Trick. Below are the winners and a roundup of all this year's participants:

14th Annual SAGA Humane Society Throws a Killer Halloween Party at the Famous Palapa Bar
Yesterday I attended the HUGE Halloween Fundraiser for the SAGA Humane Society at the Palapa Bar. It was their 14th Annual Party and jam PACKED with animals and children. ALL IN COSTUMES…all moving about…a huge crowd.
It’s one of my toughest “assignments” of the year. Over half of the photos are more like smudges or smears – this is action photography! So bear with me…
Luckily it was an absolutely GORGEOUS afternoon for a party at a beautiful spot. The Palapa Bar and SAGA Humane Society did an amazing job decorating the space, gathering tons of donated prizes and auction items and keeping the crowd well fed and watered.
Palapa Bar hosts Saga’s 14th Spooktacular Halloween party
The Saga Humane Society (Saga) held its 14th annual Halloween Spooktacular party on Sunday, October 29th at Palapa Bar and Grill in San Pedro Town. Every year the Saga brings Halloween to the island’s pet with dogs, cats and other creatures dressed up in costumes, some accompanied by their humans. There were a lot of giveaways, great food, drinks and music from 11am through 4pm, and attendees had a great time and supporting a worthy cause.
As patrons enjoyed Palapa’s spread, pets mingled around as well. From Hotdogs, Melting Hershey’s chocolate, Angel’s, Cowboys, Scuba, Wonder Woman, Vampires, to a “Cereal Killer”, the outfits were pawsitively adorable! Pet owners had a chance to participate in raffles, silent auctions, and even face painting, all leading up to the main highlight: the pet costume competition.
