Halloween: No Joke in San Pedro, Belize

And the pouring rain at 7pm wasn’t going to stop a thing.  (Things dried out by about 8.30).  There are big parties EVERYWHERE with the very biggest at the Holiday Hotel.   That one doesn’t stop until the sun comes up.   I decided to keep it relatively low key (if that is even possible) and attended a bit of a Halloween pub crawl.

Here is what I saw…starting at Roadkill Bar.

Pappa Smurf trying to do a jello shot. Wasn’t that the title of one of the Smurf episodes?

The theme of the party was Red Devils/Green Fairies based on the flavors of absinthe that Jean brews.

We got some fairies.  Here are Jean (the distiller on the right) and Tammy.

Jo as an excellent Red Devil and Matt as Tinker-Belly.
Helda did a brilliant job of being both. Talk about crafty…

Some scary…

Some scarier…

And the scariest.  Wade the Creepy Molester Clown.  It’s what nightmares are made of…and blowing up condom balloon animals didn’t help assuage my fear.

Too many good ones!  Amy as Lady Gaga.

An awesome Ali G.  Love the rings.

Beth as the merry Widow.

Dog the Bounty Hunter and his wife.

Doc the snake charmer.

OKAY!  On to Pedro’s Inn…AHHHHH!!!!  Wade again.  He got even scarier as the night went on.

One of the best pairs of the evening.

Lara as a bedazzled, bubble gum colored crayon.

Too many costumes!  The hat below was fantastic.  Finally a use for the thousands and thousands of silk and plastic flowers they sell at the A&R store in town.

On to Croc’s Bar…we passed Holiday Hotel and the crowds were gathered to watch people enter.  

Quick stop at Wahoo’s Lounge where I ran into the San Pedro Sun.  Tamara and Dennis. You need to admire someone that bleaches his hair and wears crazy blue contacts for Halloween.  That is committment!

Back to Croc’s Bar.
Pedro and Laurie as a pimp and witch-ho.
Lisa, Jo and SanPedroScoop as a San Pedro Lion.  Not much of a costume but I haven’t worn one in 25 years.  Cut me some slack!

Happy Halloween everyone!  It is far from over in San Pedro, Belize. I’m off to a Halloween brunch and then a costume party for kids, adults and pets to benefit the San Pedro Humane Society.  Trust me, I’ll be reporting back.
