Hi–hip hooray – it’s the most celebratory month of the year, as Belizeans recognize both the Battle of St. George’s Caye and Independence Day of course. The Belmopan City Council has a number of activities planned for this month, we checked with Events Coordinator Raquel Ramos for details.
On the 6th of September, which was Friday, we had the opening of the Belmopan City Celebration Calendar. That took place at the Independence Plaza, at 6:30 pm. They had Belmopan Active Youths. On the 7th we had Latino Night. That will be a paid event.
The main events happening this year in Belmopan: There’s a Salute to Belmopan that will take place at the UB Gym.
On the 10th of September, we’re having a Basketball Marathon. First place is $300, second place $200, third place $100. As well we’re having a Kid’s Marathon, which is a football marathon. That will take place at the May Gordon Park. It will be a fun day for everybody, for the kids, for the adults.
