Ambergris Caye ushers in 2019 with a huge beach party and fireworks
New Year Eve’s celebrations went off with a bang on Ambergris Caye as revelers rang in 2019 with a colorful party accompanied by a spectacular fireworks display on the beaches of downtown San Pedro. The lively festivities held at the Central Park on Monday, December 31st, saw island residents along with thousands of tourists enjoying live performances by Belizean artists, party favors and lots of food and drinks throughout the night until the first sunrise of 2019. The anticipated event organized by The San Pedro Town Council (SPTC) began at 10PM, and despite a little rain, the festivities were a success.
Following the formalities, the official countdown to welcome the New Year began. Some of the crowd gravitated toward the beach, while the rest stayed near the stage as everyone chanted the last ten seconds of 2018. When the clock ticked midnight, San Pedranos and visitors alike ushered in 2019, and the night sky above the Caribbean Sea was illuminated with a dazzling pyrotechnics display. Partygoers embraced each other as they enjoy the explosion of colors up in the sky. Immediately after, Youth Connection Band took to the stage turning up the party with their best hits.
