September 21st is Independence Day in Belize. During a break in the rain, the parade happened.
The official parade pace car/truck?
The start of the parade, we are outside Tutti Fruitti. Yes it is still closed... sigh...
The good doctor Alexis, we think.
The music vehicle of the parade. This is where the little kids rode when they got tired, the official photographer rode (no, not me) and the music, music, music.
The parade got bigger as it went along. People joined in as it went past them.
Pretty as a princess, don't you think?
We also joined in once the parade went by us.
These ladies were doing the 'punta'. I don't think they really ever stopped once.
We continued on with the parade until we reached the road to come home before it started raining again.
