10th of September
Despite the inclement weather that tried to dampen the spirit of the September 10th celebrations in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, Belize, the town managed to coronate its new queen and parade before the rain started on Tuesday, September 10, 2013.

Was it different? You bet! Oh yes, we had a grand celebration, but we did it in our own wonderful way. Twenty five years ago we did not have a lot of flags to fly around the town and at our homes. So what we did was to decorate the place by going into the bush and cutting small palm trees which were placed around the town to add more greenery and to make the place look joyful and in the celebration mood.
Yakarelis Hernandez was officially crowned San Pedro 2011, school children came out to parade, there were sack races, lime and spoon races and the Greasy Pole competition was in full swing on Saturday, September 10, 2011. San Pedro came out to celebrate for the weekend during the St. George’s Caye Day weekend celebrations.
