Belize September Celebrations 2017 Currently Underway
Belize September Celebrations are currently taking place throughout the country to commemorate the 219th anniversary of the Battle of St. George’s Caye on September 10th and national independence on September 21st. Officially launched on September 1, the entire month is considered a month of celebration. Almost two hundred years before independence in 1981, a historic battle took place off the coast between British settlers (called Baymen) and Spaniards who had made several attempts over the years to take over the area. On September 10th, 1798 a short battled ensued. When the Spaniards retreated, the British declared themselves winners.
September 21st is Independence Day, and the highlight of this year’s Belize September Celebrations is the commemoration of the 36th anniversary of independence. Even though Belize is a young country, this year’s theme speaks volumes: Confronting Challenges – Celebrating Triumphs – Renewing our Resolve. Belizeans are very patriotic, and are ready to celebrate all month long.
During a visit to Belize in September, travelers will observe extensive decorations of blue, white and red. Belize flags, and streamers adorn the streets, and everyone is in a festive mood. Vibrant parades and carnivals showcase the colors, costumes, music and dancing that is the definition of Belizean culture. There is no shortage of live music, food and drinks throughout the nation.
