June 8 - June 9
Known as Mangu in the Garifuna language, the fruit is the center of attention in Hopkins, Stann Creek. The festival itself is officially slated to start at 11AM, with live cultural music playing as around 40 gaily decorated booths present their wares to those eager to enjoy every bit of Mango goodness and culture that Hopkins has to offer. From jewelry to arts and crafts, wood works and paintings, as well as prepared mango items, there will be tons to choose from! As we all know, being out in the hot sun imbibing and eating can be pretty exhausting, and well, festival organizers have thought of everything for this year. “Spa booths” offering massages or pedicures will be just the escape needed for those weary tootsies!
