It might not have been the biggest parade that San Pedro Town in Ambergris Caye, Belize, has produced over the years, but the neon colors shone bright, smiles adorned the faces of all and the patriotic spirit of everybody who participated in the parade ignited the town. San Pedro residents paraded on Belize’s Independence Day, Sunday, September 21, 2014.

Under this year’s theme – ‘Industrious Hands, Intelligent Minds, Together for Belize’ was that the entire country of Belize observed its patriotic celebrations, from Belize City’s Carnival parade to celebratory events that took place all over the country during the month of September. Belizeans know how to celebrate and take much pride in their country during this time of year.

In San Pedro, the parade was not as large as previous years, but the energy of the participants made up for it. It was a lively and colorful parade filled with beautiful floats and vivid costumes that livened the spirit of celebration on the island.
