On February 16th and 17th, a parade of artists descended upon the sleepy village and splashed the walkway with their rainbow creations, ranging from hand carved woodwork, jewelry, sculptures, photographs, tailored clothing and of course lots of glorious, colorful paintings. The Placencia Sidewalk Arts & Music Festival was a glorious sight to behold!

Bordered with Caribbean colored homes and businesses, vibrant blooming trees and tropical flowers, you would think the historic Placencia Village beach sidewalk was replete with color. But it was possible to saturate the area even more, creating a kaleidoscope of art and color for the eyes to feast on.

With live music and food booths adding to the event, the 10th annual Placencia Sidewalk Arts & Music Festival was enjoyed by hundreds of visitors who ventured to the peninsula for a weekend of celebrating Belizean artisans and their fine creations.

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.
