Concert in the park Series; a prelude to September celebrations

dion leslie

The Concert in the Park series is a monthly venture held by the Belize City Council in collaboration with partners such as SMART and the Belize Diabetes Association.  Since September is a month of national celebrations, the concert series has been expanded to an all out block party and health fair. City Councillor Dion Leslie says Saturday’s entertainment and health education experience is for the entire family.

“SMART has come aboard as a major sponsor along with the Belize City Council. We’re having it again this Saturday here, downtown Belize City. We’ll be blocking the intersections of Albert Street with Bishop Street and Kings Street and we’ll be having tents out there. We want to create a block party type atmosphere; a good way to kick off the September celebrations for the Belize City Council and the Belize City residents and this is how the City Council is doing this. We’ll be having the Young Stars Band, a young up and coming band. They have been featured in the battle of bands and other things throughout Belize. They’ll be performing from ten to two and Belize Diabetes Association will be out there again doing free education and free sugar testing. We also have the Ministry of Health along with the Belize City Council’s health department doing out doing free dengue education. We’re tackling two things right now that are very important and on the rise right now in Belize. So that’s what we’re doing. We also have SMART bringing out Black Pearl Carnival Group to do a brief presentation out there. So we’re inviting all Belize City residents and non-residents to the city to come out and enjoy the free music. SMART should be doing some giveaways. So come out, enjoy it, have fun. Bring back the spirit and the atmosphere of real September celebrations is what we’re striving towards.”

In addition to the Concert in the Park, this weekend’s entertainment also includes the Lion Man Triathlon.
