B.T.L. Park Star-Studded Saturday Concert Features Cham, Cecile, Ernestine, Supa G…

The City Council is celebrating the fourth anniversary of the B.T.L. Park with a free grand fireworks showcase and concert on Saturday night. The event kicks off with celebrations for the kids and later in the night Jamaican and local artists like Baby Cham and Supa G will be performing. Today, we spoke with the PR Manager of the Belize City Council and some of the artists about what you can expect from the show.

“The B.T.L. Park is symbolic for the Belize City Council because it represents what we want in the City. This is a partnership between the public sector, private sector, residents and all the community organizers involved. So, the B.T.L. Park anniversary is not a celebration of the park itself but the symbolism of what the park represents. If we can get every other service of the City Council to operate how B.T.L. Park is operating with that type of partnership, we will have a much better City and that is what we celebrate every year at B.T.L. Park.  From six to eight is for the children and after eight you will have the longest fireworks show you have ever seen and from nine the adults show starts with a lineup of the start studded entertainers. We have Supa G, NXT, TY, Marlyn Vansen, Ernestine, NXG dancers, Chanelle Parks, Nello Player, and at the end of the night, we will have Baby Cham and Cecile.   We have the GSU and we have over fifty other police officers other than the GSU Unit and we have twenty other special constables  from the Belize City Council. So, it is a safe event. For the children, we will have Jael August, the characters, Ozzy the Clown, free ice-cream which the children will enjoy and after eight we will start the fireworks show and that is the signal that it is time for the children to go and the adults to step in. It is free, so first come and first serve. The first amount of children will get their ice-cream and then after that the time has passed. If you come first you get to go in front of the stage and there is no VIP section here.”

 

Baby Cham

Baby Cham, Artist

“It is my first free concert and we expect everyone should get out their homes and whatever you are doing and come out and enjoy yourself. Every time I am here it is always special for me. Every performance I have done here, I have been one that the Belizean fans always remember. So, to me it is like a fiesta, like a joyride. Hopefully, a lot of kids will be here, a lot of time we have concert, and we don’t get to see the kids like that because our concerts are really 18 and older. So, we want to see a lot of kids and hopefully all the fans come out and enjoy themselves. The new album is out there. Album entitled ‘Lawless’ and I know a lot of people have been pumping a lot of tracks from the album, so we have something special for them. Neva eve seen it before.”

 

Cecile

Cecile, Artist

“From the very first show, I felt like I was in Jamaica. And you get that sometimes – at a few places, very few places that are like that. I just love the energy of the place and I just want to make sure that this time it is much better than the last time. I have been here quite a while too, like seven times. I think I deserve citizenship now. I deserve a house here and we need to work on that. But it is gonna be crazy.”

“This is my first concert of 2018. I am honored and dah nothing but niceness as usual. I can’t give it away but there will be a band Cool Jay’s Band and my entire team will be on stage so come out tomorrow night.”
