Sir Barry’s Belikin Bash is Here Again

The Sir Barry Bowen Belikin Bash, formerly known as Belikin Fest, is a popular event in string of activities for the September Celebrations. The three-day event, which is traditionally held at the Memorial Park in Belize City, starts this Thursday night and will feature your favorite beverages produced by the Bowen group. It’s a fun-filled family event that also sees thousands of persons gathering to see mega performances from artists such as Supa G, Sweet Pain and the Gilharry Seven. This year, there are several new performers as well as a grand surprise on the final day of the Belikin Bash. Digital Media Coordinator, Juan Carlos Cuellar, says that the September roll out for the company starts with a big announcement on Open Your Eyes on Thursday morning.

“It’s this September fourth, fifth and sixth. As everybody knows, it is a three-night free concert featuring all Belizean line up. And this year, what we decided to do as well is bring in different genres of music, people from different parts of the country. Yes you are going to have the usual people that are there to highlight everything, like Sweet Pain Band and Supa G, but we are also trying to diversify the type of music that we have available to appeal to everyone. It’s going to be a fun event out at Memorial Park and it is something I know everyone looks forward to and as always, as it has always been, it is going to be a safe and fun concert to participate and see.”

“What new features does the show have?”

“New features…we got a few toys in as far as lights and that kind of effects are concerned, so we intend to debut that at the bash. It is always fun when we get in new equipment and we can play around with that. As far as the artists, I’m sure they’ll take the opportunity to debut the new songs that they have lined up as well. So everyone is looking forward to what the event has to offer. You have your nonalcoholic beverage tent which will include the Coca Cola line up and products as well as Crystal water. And of course we have the Belikin tent which will feature our Belikin line up which is Belikin beer, Belikin stout, lighthouse; we’ll also have Belikin in cans and we’ll have it in drafts as well. We will also have Guinness and Smirnoff available for sale. As much as we like having fun over 

Belikin, we are also very much concerned to the security; it is paramount for us. Just as previous years, police presence will be out there, security is going to be tight. We encourage everyone to just come out and have a good time. The police is out there to have a presence and to ensure that everyone behaves in an orderly fashion and that’s what we expect. It’s gonna be interesting starting off on Thursday….we have a major announcement starting Thursday morning on Open Your Eyes and that’s gonna be the beginning of a roll out for us, so to speak, for the rest of September and we also have another major announcement on Saturday night, the last night of bash, so we encourage people to come out and take a listen to what that might be.”

 

For the remainder of the week, mas camps are taking place and the weekend is dedicated to the King and Queen competition as well as the equally popular Expo Marketplace.

    I thought the Police and other Agencies were promoting “Don’t Drink and Drive”……. many people do not know how to drink responsibly……well let’s have competition, bring the Mexicans so we could drink some Mexican Beers…..
