San Pedro JUMPS UP For Belize’s 33rd Birthday Independence Day Parade, Part Two

September 21st is San Pedro’s biggest parade of the year and I have lots more pictures.  If you didn’t see yesterday’s post with the pre-parade and the start, check it out.

Let’s continue with San Pedro’s amazing September 21st parade…and the hibiscus flowers and hummingbirds of The Island Academy.

Part Two.

There was quite a crowd at the beginning turn.  A few hundred people standing on the shade side of the street and zero people on the other side.

On Front Street they were joined by Telenovela star Shelley.  Strike a pose.

Kids, despite the incredibly loud music, were falling asleep left and right.  Super cute to me.
