Day two of El Gran Carnaval de San Pedro was full of laughter, color and fun! Children and adults hit the street in bright colors painting and having much fun. The comparsas did not fail to impress this year once more as four comparsa groups hit the streets of San Pedro and danced the night away.
Coming out with Comparsa groups on Monday, March 3, 2014, were:
* The San Pedro AIDS Commission: with a rendition of The World Cup dressed in soccer uniforms
* Doña Flora's Group: that dressed up as the Belizean Hindu and celebrated their culture with authentic dresses, headbands and accessories
* The Barbies: always entertaining with a tribute to El Chapo Guzman
*Ambergris Caye Elementary School: (ACES) stepped out with a comparsa dancing the May Pole a typical and traditional Mestizo Dance

Lots of preparations take place to organize a Comparsa – there is the writing of the lyrics, composing the songs, getting the costumes ready and then rehearsals. In the end, all the groups put on a fantastic show for everybody to enjoy during Carnaval. Keep on enjoying San Pedro’s Carnaval Festivities on this the last day of painting and dancing.
