Sad to announce that San Pedro Carnaval will be cancelled this year...

===

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are unable to celebrate San Pedro's most unique tradition; however, many are asking when are the dates. This year, Carnaval begins on Sunday, February 14th, and ends with the burning of Don Juan Carnaval on Ash Wednesday, February 17, 2021.

We are sad not to be able to celebrate the joy of this tradition; enjoying the music, comparsas and of course, the painting. We will miss you all this year! Stay safe.

Sadly we are not able to celebrate Carnaval like we love to, but Mrs. Flora and her group prepared a special comparsa for everyone to enjoy. Hope you have fun watching!

Pandemic changes the way San Pedranos celebrate carnaval

Compared to previous years, El Gran Carnaval de San Pedro was celebrated this year with far less fanfare. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there were no street comparsas or painting in downtown San Pedro and no beach parties associated with the anticipated annual festivity. However, the traditional event was privately celebrated, and those fond of the comparsas were still able to enjoy them virtually during the three-night celebration from the 14th to the 16th of February.

Families enjoyed painting parties at home while Town Councilor Flora Ancona with her comparsas group performed at Ambergris Stadium. They virtually offered the missed entertaining dancing usually enjoyed on the streets each night of the three-day festivity. The other two comparsa groups who typically take part, San Pedro AIDS Commission and the popular Barbies (men dressed as women), were absent this year. The pandemic might have changed the celebratory ambiance of one of San Pedro’s oldest traditions, but residents look forward to a fun and enjoyable carnaval in 2022.
