Orange Walk is where Belizeans go to get the best tacos in the land, and, tonight we'll declare that instead of Sugar City, that place should be called Tacos Town.
And, if you have any doubts, try going there on Sunday for the annual tacos takeover.
It's the 6th annual tacos fest, where vendors will serve up any kind of meat that can be wrapped in a tortilla. One of the organizers shared more about the highly anticipated event.
Robert Usher, Event Organizer "We will be having chicken tacos, beef tacos, seafood tacos. We will also be having tacos el pastor. The tacos that go around and the meat is turning around and you can cut it and drop it and make your tacos quick. They have the cochinita pibil that they put under the ground. They also have special from August Pine Ridge. They make their tacos right there and they make the tortilla with their hands. That is a ver y special part of the tacos festival as well. We have over 20 vendors that registered so we will have a lot of tacos."
"The inspiration is to highlight the tacos industry in Orange walk. We know from its inception of the tacos fest 6 years ago many people are getting into the tacos because the tacos fest has made it known that it is an industry."
"It is gonna be big entertainment for everyone and also we have entertainment for the kids. We have a bouncy house, we have a kid's corner as well. We will have the people selling tortilla also lots of fun and giveaways."
"When the vendors sign up they pay a small fee. We give them their space and they get a full crate of chicken from quality poultry products. It is an incentive for the vendors as well. For them to go out there and make a little money."
The event starts at 7 am on Sunday and will take place at the Banquitas House of Culture in Orange Walk town.
