2023 San Pedro Lobsterfest Block Party Is The Best Ever…
Although I think I say that every year. San Pedro, Belize 2023 Lobsterfest did not disappoint. Not one bit. In fact, there were more booths, more bands, more performers, and well…more lobsters than ever before. And I finally ate my first lobster of the season – in a dip, in a taco, and in some very tasty lobster corn dogs.
The Saturday night block party is the culmination of a week+ long festival. Each day leading up to the big community party, there are two events at local businesses. And then everyone comes together to celebrate. Here are all the businesses that had booths in the football field.
But let me get to the photos, so you can start planning for 2024.
If you haven’t been to our island yet – take a look at My Guide to Ambergris Caye. And then dive into Lobster Fest.
We got there early – so I could take some pictures before the crowds arrived but by 5:30pm, people were already flowing in…and the music was playing.
Everyone was fully set up and ready to go. Not like when I helped with a cupcake booth at the first lobster festival in 2007 – everybody was running late that year.
LOVE the balloon entrance. He blew over just before we arrived but that was quickly remedied.
Soooo many lobster options.
DJ Debbie is the best. Always.
Gimme anything with coconut rice.
I love the steel pan band from Belmopan, Belize (our capital) – Panerrifix. They have been performing at the San Pedro Lobster Festival for over a decade.
We tried a pair of corn dogged lobster from 303 Belize.
The dip…$8bzd was a very good price.
Up on stage for the early crowd…this event goes late night! And the crowd only grows.
When the steel drums took an intermission, the San Pedro Dance Academy was up. Sooo cute.
It was so great to see so many people – the music was fantastic…it was just a great night. Be there next year!
