In keeping with tradition Sunday, February 10th saw the front and middle streets of San Pedro decorated with performing comparsas in colorful attire. Singing scripted songs and theatrically dressed, individual groups representing schools and organizations took to the streets to dance and showcase their carnaval spirit. Children also spent the afternoon at the beach side Central Park where they enjoyed the tradition of painting each other. Carnaval festivities continue through Tuesday, February 11th.

About the Author: Tamara Sniffin

I’m a sucker for a fuzzy face, a feathered face, a face with fins or even one with scales! I am in love with the creatures and the flora that are synonymous with Belize and every opportunity I have to learn more about them and explore their wild habitats I am there! I’m the happiest when I’m snorkeling the reef and swimming with turtles, however my passion is not just limited to critters! Laced throughout this compact jungle gem of a country live the Kriol, Maya, Garifuna, Mestizo and Spanish people, and experiencing each culture, especially their celebrations is one of my favorite pastimes.
