The month of November comes to an end today, which means it’s time to officially kick off the Christmas season. Across the country, municipal leaders are preparing to turn on the lights on their Christmas trees.  The Orange Walk Town Council is taking the lead. On Thursday night, they will be hosting their tree lighting ceremony inside Central Park. Ladrick Sheppard, the Mayor of Orange Walk, told us that there will be Christmas decoration competition among all municipalities and he intends for his town to win the prize. We caught up with Mayor Sheppard today in Belmopan.

“As we speak, on Thursday, today is Wednesday, tomorrow we will be doing the opening of the Christmas celebrations, the lighting of the tree, so I wish you guys could come out and I am quite sure you guys will be amazed with the amount of work my team, it is the entire team. We basically shut down all the operations only the garbage operation has been working right now, so the entire crew came together and we are doing him decoration of our central park. When I do things, I do things for the community. I must say we want to make people happy. We want to say that when you come out and take your kids to the park, like I said, the play ground that is the center if the park that is one of the main attractions that I did. And also like I said, the amount of work that we are putting in, you guys would be amazed that Orange Walk is going to be one of the most place to take a spin and not only to great tacos put to enjoy the good atmosphere. Then on the seventeenth of December we will have our Christmas parade that is a huge parade.
