Tasty appetizers are also served, and the ambiance is warm with twinkling lights and live music performed by talented Belizean artists. Itís the perfect evening of mixing and mingling while indulging in chocolate and charismatic culture.
Although chocolate is the star of this event, the festival also celebrates the many different ethnicities of Belize and their cultural beliefs.
