Belize’s Biggest Gathering: The 2014 National Agriculture & Trade Show – Part Two
The National Agriculture & Trade Show in Belmopan is a BIG DEAL. Yesterday, I posted pictures of the rides, some of the booths, the food. Here are lots more pictures of what I saw. The music was loud, it was crowded but not THAT crowded, it was hot but thankfully there was a bit of a cloud cover to save us from all out blazing heat.
Mostly it’s a TON of good times and a little sprinkling of danger. Just like this massive, fast moving ferris wheel and it’s pre-teen operator.
Totally worth the risk for the view.
So let me continue where I left off yesterday…
A very serious young cowboy.
The very difficult vegetable judging.
I do not envy the judge his job. How could you possibly choose The Best Cabbage in Belize – they look exactly the same. Weight was clearly involved…
I always love the folks just doing their own thing. Making yummy jam like these two Swiss-Bealizeans. $3-$4.50bzd for DELICIOUS spreads. I bought quite a few.
Tamarind is my very favorite.
Had to grab a cocoa mint body scrub too. I am, after all, a connoisseur of all things chocolate.
I SO would have purchased one of these beautiful hangings but knew it would arrive home in a tangled mess.
Time for the kids rodeo. Saturday was the children (you’d put your 7 year old on a bucking calf, right?) and Sunday for the adults.
Very fun times. If you haven’t been here, you’ve got to go.
