Lobster Festival San Pedro Starts Tomorrow – Here’s the Scoop!

The official start to Lobster season is just ONE DAY away.  Fishermen have been out setting traps and laying down lobster shades in preparation and the events are in place for the Ambergris Caye Lobster Festival…

The passports are in…


The pies are being readied at Boogie’s Belly…

Here is a recap of what’s about to go down in San Pedro town.  At the beginning, at each event, you can pick up a Passport and then get a stamp at each event.


Pick up your passport at any event.

An attendee of the festival is going all out.  Look at these nails!


At the end, at the Block Party, passports will be collected (and returned to you for a very cool souvenir)… Each stamp will entitle the passport holder to a raffle ticket to enter into a grand raffle of a vacation package for two to the San Pedro Lobster Festival 2017. The more stamps you get in your passport the more chances you have to win! The winner receives a vacation package back to San Pedro. The package includes local air fare, complimentary hotel stays, tours, golf cart rental, bar tabs, dinner and many more surprises.

Here is the official schedule.

The Block Party on Saturday night, the 25th is the block buster event.

Lots of the restaurants in town will have booths and will be competing for best drink and best lobster dish.  There will be live music including MY FAVORITE The Kids’ Pannerifix Steel Drum Band.  They always kick off the event with a mix of old and new…

And always make me tear up.

Following up:  Dennis Wolfe Jr, DJ Debbie and Titiman Flores from Dangriga.

There will be shirts available, lots of booths and lobster made 1000 different ways.

I am currently in Rhode Island but will be back JUST in time for the big block party on June 25th.  I’ll make sure to sample some New England lobsters here to make sure our Spinys are up to par.
