Belize City Council Hosting a Night for Mothers

On Saturday between five p.m. and eleven p.m., North Front Street from its junction with Victoria Street and Hyde’s Lane will be blocked off to vehicular traffic as “A Night for Mom” takes place. The area will be transformed into a marketplace with food and music. There will be booths featuring Belizean entrepreneurs, as well as a kids’ zone.  It is an event for the entire family, but a special treat for mothers.  The initiative is the brainchild of the Belize City Council which, for some time, has been organizing events that boost economic activity in areas across the city. Today, News Five spoke with Public Relations Manager Erin Garnett for more details about the event.

“This is something for local vendors, for entrepreneurs, people who are trying to make an honest living and so this is really going to be a space where you can come, support local vendors, eat, drink and get some live entertainment. And honestly, this is the place to find the perfect mother’s day gift if you haven’t already. This is going to be from five p.m. to eleven p.m. North Front Street. This is going to be directly in front of Victoria Alvarez Park. So we are going to be using from Victoria Street to Hyde’s Lane. Our goal has really been to create recreational activities for family, things that are inclusive, things that have something for everyone and things that are positive for us to do in Belize City. And we have so many residents so we really want to focus on things that are positive, but also where we can support each other and that’s where our local small businesses come into play. And so this is just one of those things. This is something that we have been doing for a while. In addition to our super sale, we have been trying to get really creative in finding things and taking it to different communities so everyone has a chance to make some money.”


The next event will be held in June in the Lake Independence area.
