Hanal Pixan means “food of the souls” and is celebrated to remember friends and relatives that have passed onto the afterlife. From October 31 to November 2 is when the deceased are permitted to visit their loved ones. On Saturday, October 26th, 2019 the National Institute of Culture and history through the Corozal House of Culture and To'one Masehualoon brings to you the "Tradition of " Food for the Souls". This event will take place at the Corozal Central Park at 7pm.

The Corozal House of Culture planned the 2019 Hanal Pixan on Saturday, October 26th, 2019. The event was held at the Corozal Central Park at 7pm. Several booths showcased their Hanal Pixan Altar booths at the Corozal Central Park. Locals by then had filled the chairs that wherein the park. Some were even standing before 7pm to witness this lovely Maya event.

An open ceremony was held during the Show by the TOONE Masehualoon, promoting the Maya Culture in the Northern District of Corozal, National Anthem in Maya, showcasing the Maya Dancing, Brief history about the Hanal Pixan, and the First ever, Female's playing the Maya Ball Game.

During the show, I observed different types of food being sold, Or, was just being showcased as sample. And, the food, went fast. There even a guy dressed in clown, and, a young girl dressed as Female Hanal Pixan clothing style. I loved attending this event which you learn lots of history about the past Maya History in Belize.
