Fourth Annual Street Art Festival in Belize City

vlcsnap-2014-02-25-03h15m41s231Art comes in many different forms, shapes and sizes, and all forms were on display this past Saturday in downtown Belize City.

Albert Street from its junction with Orange Street to its junction with Dean Street was awash with color and life, whether it was musical performances, drama, cultural displays and even food, which is in itself somewhat of an art.

We took a look and spoke to some of the artists.
