It Rained On San Pedro, Belize’s St. George’s Caye Day Parade
September 10th is a national holiday in Belize that commemorates the British Baymen beating back the Spanish in very early Belize history. The Battle of St. George’s Caye. In San Pedro, Belize, to celebrate, the kids in town put on their uniforms (even though it’s a day off) and march in a parade.
Here are some pictures from the parade earlier today. The kids were supposed to gather at 9am. I arrived at about 9:20am and things were just getting together.
And the High School. I still can’t believe that these kids and their parents can keep these white uniforms white. The girls’ classes are distinguished by their different color ties. Not sure how the boys are differentiated.
