While Belmopan’s Taking Back the Land Parade is a part of the September Celebrations, there are other activities planned leading up to Monday. Tricia Pelayo, Public Relations Officer for Belmopan CityCouncil told us about some upcoming events for the Nation’s Capital.
Today is already the 18th of September; we had much more activities that had have taken place but leading up to the 21st of September; Tomorrow which is Saturday 19th, we have the Block party at the corner of Libertad junction; that is from 6pm to 12 midnight. The 20th Night is the flag raising ceremony but before the ceremony there is the Annual “Taking back the land” parade hosted by Richard Smith. And when that ends we go right into the flag raising ceremony. After the flag raising we go into the spectacular fireworks display. After that we go into the 21st day itself, as many people know the National Ceremonies are held here in Belmopan. This year the parade is going to be much bigger, we have a lot of businesses and NGO’s and Schools coming out in the parade this year.
