Lobsterfest June 27, 28, 29

Caye Caulker’s is known for many things nowadays. Once, a sleepy fishing village and now a thriving tourist playground. Caye Caulker is the birthplace of Belize’s Lobsterfest. Fishermen are busy hauling up their traditional palmetto wooden traps to feed the people at this weekend’s 19th annual Lobsterfest, since it’s creation in 1994. It should be the 20th, but one year they had to cancel. Created to kick off the Lobster Season, which started June 15th and will end Feb 14th 2015. This Friday the 27th is the Miss Lobsterfest Pageant starting at 7pm and Miss Britany Ysaguirre is one of 5 contestants competing this year to win the title. We are almost positive she is going to win. The cost is $15BZ to enter to cheer her on. Seating starts at 6:30pm. The contest is typical pageant style and the prizes are endless. Last week was the Dinner Gala, where they introduced themselves. Tomorrow is the pageant parade, where they ride in their float that they have a decorated. Saturday the 28th at 10am, is the official kick off parade with the newly crowned Miss Lobsterfest leading the way. There are information booths and food stalls all day. Come 3 o’clock is the first Colour Powder Party where you are to wear white shirts, they are also selling Lobsterfest Festival Tanks and T’s for $25BZ, which will be perfect for this event. There will be a party all night long and all day Sunday from the split to the Palapa grounds. Come see the biggest lobster contest and more. Lots of fun happening this weekend in Caye Caulker. I am just glad I will be here to enjoy it. There are still rooms available!
