Carnaval de San Pedro, Belize.

Carnaval in San Pedro, is a three-day annual event that Island residents Love and Enjoy. Locals run around town painting each other with colorful paints and breaking eggs on the closest person’s head. It is a tradition that has been around for years and there are no signs of it coming to an end even though there are a lot of people that come to live here from other parts of this world that hate it and want to put a stop to it.  I don’t see anything wrong with it. It is our culture and tradition, if they don’t like it, then they have a choice :)

Back to Carnaval.  Other than painting, there are the Comparsas. The comparsas are groups that dance to popular songs but with edited lyrics. Also, the men dress like women and the women like men. There are also school comparsas which are organized to raise funds for their school’s needs.

Here are some pictures  and a short video from Day One.  I hope you enjoyed this post. If you did, feel free to share on you favorite social network using all the cool buttons at the beginning or ending of this post :)
