Happy 27th Township Day in San Pedro!

San Pedro loves a good party and a good holiday.  And today is Township Day.  Celebrated each November 27th, it commemorates that date in 1984 when San Pedro officially became a town.  Not to be confused with San Pedro Day which takes place in June to celebrate the first families moving to Ambergris Caye to escape the Caste War in Mexico in the mid 1800s.

Unfortunately, the weather does not seem to be cooperating with our holiday just yet.  Don’t rain on our parade!

Yesterday was gray, cool, breezeless and overcast as we walked over to Victoria House for lunch.  Though it brightened a bit as the day went on, the sun was never fully out.

Today is starting out the same…this is the sunrise, or what was peeking through the heavy cloud cover.

Oh well, there are still lots of festivities to celebrate today’s holiday.  Here is the line-up that I have been able to gather from this week’s SanPedroSun.com.

9am.  Central Park.  5K Run/Walk with all proceeds going to Mama Vilma’s Family Home.  (They will probably enjoy the cooler weather)

3.30pm.  Some sort of ceremony to inaugurate the newly paved road north of town.  Parade begins in the Boca Del Rio Area.  And goes around the main streets.  (Curious to see what happens at the clock tower – it will be our first real test).

Evening/Night:  Concert with Supa G (he is SO FUN live), San Pedro Dance Company and More.  FIREWORKS!

Have a great day everyone.  And let’s hope it brightens up…just a little.
