The Independence Parade in San Pedro Part Two: Jump Up Behind the Truck!

More photos from Belize’s 35th Birthday Party in San Pedro.   Did I mention that it was HOT?  I’m giving you all my photos because, well, I worked hard for them.  The temperature may have been 89 degrees at noon but the real feel?  Accuweather tells me it was 110.  And I BELIEVE!  Blistered feet, a crazy sunburn and…some sort of heat exhaustion that make me…well a bit sick.  Was it worth it?

MOST DEFINITELY.  Here is Part One.  And Part Two…

The actual parade.  Hopefully you can feel the energy.

The AID commission did a fantastic section of the parade with the theme – volunteerism.


Followed up by Mayor Danny and Minister Heredia!


Sandy Toes Bar, Finn & Martini Restaurant and El Jefe Food Truck…


And then Xanadu Resort and the Garifuna Commission of San Pedro.

And then the AMAZING Mystic Mas group.  I got so many great pictures of them in Part One.  Here they are in action…as I was swooning 🙂

I don’t know how they do it.


AND A QUICK IMPORTANT LOST DOG ANNOUNCEMENT!  Stella, the beautiful dog at Sandbar Hostel, Bar & Restaurant, was scared off by the fireworks on Tuesday night and is still missing!  Her owner Britteny (Mayor Danny above 🙂 ) is furiously looking for her.


Her collar has her # on it.  But if you have seen her, please call Brittney!  630-1241
