San Pedro Town celebrates the 221st Anniversary of the Battle of St. George’s Caye with a new queen and colorful parade

On Tuesday, September 10th, the 221st Anniversary of the Battle of the St. George’s Caye was observed on La Isla Bonita with a uniform parade and the presentation of the recently elected Miss San Pedro Litzy Castillo Guillen.

Other activities included a fire engine parade the evening before the official ceremonies at the Louis Sylvestre Sporting Complex and an all-day sporting event at the Boca del Rio Park.

Signalling the Battle of St. George’s Caye celebration, a fire engine parade took place through San Pedro Town shortly after 6PM on Monday, September 9th. The island’s Fire Department, Traffic Department, and Police Formation led the parade, blaring sirens as a tribute to the Baymen of St. George’s Caye, who led the foundation of the country on September 10, 1798.

Celebrations Take Off in San Pedro for the 10th Day Of September

221 years ago, in a final attempt to take over the area, the Spaniards took on a small but scrappy group of Brits and their slaves. The Spanish basically controlled the entire “New World” at that time. But after 7 days the British prevailed and expelled the Spaniards – and held onto British Honduras (later Belize) for almost 200 more years.

September 10th is a national holiday in Belize and celebrates this battle for independence. In San Pedro, it is a day to party, for many, a day off from work and a day for the uniform parade.

The new Miss San Pedro is crowned and they she is surrounded by the town council, the police force and the fire department and the MANY school children of the island.

I…arrived LATE! For a parade. SO OFF MY GAME. I got caught in a golf cart traffic jam…had to ditch my cart and head up a block or two to catch the tail end of the Uniform Parade. If you can’t beat ’em, join them.
