Thanks to our judges, Michelle Nuñez, Miss San Pedro, Gerry Badillo from Ambergris Today, Mary Gonzalez from The San Pedro Sun, Joe Chung, Geovanni Martinez & Rebecca Coutant from San Pedro Scoop. A special cheer of appreciation goes out to our food runners from the San Pedro Sailing Club. Thanks to the San Pedro Dance Company for entertaining the audience. Our volunteers Amanda Syme, Renita Dellaca, Peter Lawrence; thanks to Rebecca and Alyssa Arceo for being our official “crawlers” and attending every event so we would be up to the minute reports and pictures of all the fun.
