Corozal Carnival September 20th, 16

COPYRIGHT (Jay Eiley)
On September 20, 16 the parade commenced at 1-pm were people gathered in front of the Corozal bus station to witness the Carnival floats. I couldn't imagine that the temperature was very high in the 90's.  I saw a lot of people buying cold drinks to cool off from extreme heat.  With umbrella's and under the shade still wasn't enough for the heat to cool of the body since there where to much people gathered in one line. At around 3pm, I heard the sirene from the distance and everyone got excited of seeing the parade commence. I was standing next to one of my friend under the umbrella while I was taking my photos. How fun was that? she was part of my background helper Suzanne Vasquez.

The colourful floats red white and blue which is the color that reperesnts the flag of Belize. Other groups had different coloured uniform's, floats, dances, skits  and presentation. Some groups where hyped up dureing the parade.  Corozal Community College, Corozal sailing club, San Narciso, Hair Ways, Concepcion Majestic Girls, The Corozal Branch office, Rainbow Dazzling, RG's Raging Pool, Ultimate Sapphire, fitness Home Centre, ADO Bus and more where part of this parade. And, hey there wasn't any Judging for that day.  I saw the cycles from Fiestarama in Orange Walk joined the parade. And, seeing those crowded people witnessing the parade couldn't ask for a better parade. This Carnival floats had different theme and meaning of what there costume meant.  Small businesses came out to promote their business. Belikin is one of the biggest promotion in this event. Especially, when it comes to September celebrations around Belize.



Every year on the 21st of September after the parade in Corozal town, floats move to Orange Walk where it is one of the largest Carnival on the North of Belize. It usually commence at 1pm, but because of the delays it has every year it commenced at 3pm. Its famous for the after party Jump Up parade and rides are available at the event. Floats as excellent as the Steel drum music, Jump UP, Belikin, Cuellos Distillery, Drum Bands and more. Since, it was a holiday everyone went there to witness the fun event.
