The San Pedro House of Culture, San Pedro Roman Catholic Church and residents of San Pedro gathered in front of the St.Peter’s statue outside of the Catholic Church on Wednesday, June 28, 2017, to celebrate “Dia De San Pedro” / St.Peter’s Day!
The audience was delighted throughout the night with presentations by the cultural group from Palmar, Orange Walk, The San Pedro Dance Academy, The Trio (including one of San Pedro’s very own) and The Mariachi.
“Dia De San Pedro” celebrates the memory of the town’s patron saint and of fishermen everywhere. A special mass for all fishermen took place early in the morning, Thursday, June 29, 2017, at 4:00 a.m. at the Catholic Church, followed by breakfast at the Lion’s Den and the procession/blessing of boats at sea.
Feliz Dia de San Pedro / Happy St. Peter's Day
