Belize is 31!!! Happy Independence day to all Belizeans at home and abroad!!


Celebration time in Belize comes again in the month of September and every year brings a new and different experience. And just as it is every year, the country brings the many faces of beautiful Belize together to display our colors, culture, history, music and with one goal; to celebrate Belize.

After a night of pomp and circumstance, complete with block party, good food, music and fireworks, everyone was eagerly anticipating the big Jump-Up Parade through the principal streets of San Pedro. This year’s parade was certainly full of color and energy – with gorgeous floats, costumes and happy dancers! We will let the photos speak for themselves – enjoy the gallery below!!

Here at The San Pedro Sun, we would like to wish everyone a HAPPY and SAFE Independence Day weekend! Long live Belize, and may our country’s many faces achieve their many dreams and goals as they celebrate Belize!!
