Celebrating September Celebrations in a Responsible Manner

Patrick Faber

Aside from being U.D.P. Leader Elect and Culture Minister, Patrick Faber is also in charge of culture. Today, he was asked about this year’s September Celebrations Septembers.  According to Faber, mass gathering will not be permitted but certain events will still be held in a control manner.


Patrick Faber, Minister of Culture

“What we are saying this year is that we cannot kill the celebrations all together and so we are going to celebrate but we are going to celebrate in a very responsible way. That means no kind o mass gathering. The carnival, j’ouvert and road march are not going to happen this year.  I don’t think that comes as a surprise to anybody. In fact it is not going to be illegal for any gathering above twenty five. It may well get down to some lower numbers because of what is happening right now. But we are going to limit the activities to those that can be done virtually and those that absolutely have to happen like I would say the tenth day ceremony and the twenty first ceremony in the daytime where we most as a symbol of devotion to our country make a mark of the anniversary of the Battle of Saint George’s Caye and of our country’s independence by commemorating these special days but this will be done in a very controlled way.”
