Where are Belizeans Off to this Easter Weekend?

While it has its religious significance, many Christians will find themselves inside a church to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. For many others, a trip to the cayes or Placencia, going across the border to Chetumal or even visiting with relatives is their way of celebrating the occasion. So today, we took to downtown Belize City to get an idea of the plans for the holidays.
