In 2007, the San Pedro business community decided to host its very first Lobster Festival in Belize. Placencia’s had been in place (this year is the 17th Anniversary) and so had Caye Caulker (this year is the 21st) for a while…
But we were new – especially me. It was my first summer living in Belize. Food, drinks, music (a pretty awesome jamband called “The Fat Cats”)…it turned out to be a HUGE success. HUGE. My friend and I even had a booth serving 1000 cupcakes and a drink called “Mermaid’s Kiss” – some frothy blue concoction with Blue Curacao and coconut rum.
The article from San Pedro Sun 2007 features a picture of our first and only Lobster King and Queen and even my booth. Tacogirl also wrote about the event with plenty of pictures.
I still have our booth’s sign hanging in my loft.
And I was a judge of the food and the drink…it is NOT an easy task.
2013 I was in the states and missed the whole thing!
Caye Caulker’s (by the way) is pretty kick-ass.
So much for my trip down memory lane with the world’s favorite crustacean. Let’s talk this year. 2015. June 14th to 21st.
