Miss San Pedro Crowned | Photo of the Day | 10th of September Celebrations 2012 | Ambergris Caye Belize
Today, 10th of September 2012, we celebrated the 214th anniversary of the Battle of St. George’s Caye. A very important date because it was when the Baymen fought and won against the Spaniards who had come to invade our beautiful Belize.
It is also the date when our new Miss San Pedro is crowned. Below are the lovely ladies who vied for the title of Miss San Pedro along with Yakarelis Hernandez, our past queen, with our new Miss San Pedro 2012 – 2013, Naiely Odalis Puc (in the center).
There is even a very popular and patriotic song, The tenth day of September. Here are the lyrics to the song:
The tenth day of September!
It was the 10th day of September In ninety-eight Anno Domini
when our fore-fathers won the
glorious fight at Old St. George’s Caye
Then hail them – cheer them.
Let our grateful loyal hearts not fail them,
as we march and sing and shout in merry glee
The Battle of St. George’s Caye.
Hip! Hip! Hurrah. Hip! Hip! Hurrah.
