Multi-Cultural Festival schedule for this weekend

Story PictureWith no shortage of activities scheduled for this weekend, the Belize City Council is hoping that Belizeans from across the country will show up in force for the return of the Festival Grand Market. Re-named the Multi-Cultural Fair, CITCO’s Michael Theus says the event will satisfy the soul … and the stomach.

Michael Theus, Committee Member, Multi-Cultural Fair
?We thought of trying to celebrate Belize on a whole by using all the culture as possible. And the nostalgia of what actually used to be Belize Technical College compound gave us the idea to let?s trying and bring back some things which were actually?were fruitful back in the days for Belize. It has actually caught on and we decided to just go full fledge into and see if we can actually promote this on a yearly basis from this point on. To try and get all Belizeans to appreciate the culture of each and every person who makes up our country.?

?What would you tell Belizeans to come on out and support this venture??

?The fair, how it is actually being set up is to make sure that everything that you be looking for in line of entertainment, in line of culture, in line of games and things for the kids will be on display. Music-wise, we are using a lot of the local Belizean stars who will be on display bringing their best to be on display. Likewise too a lot of the councils, the Garifuna council, the Creole, the East Indian, the Taiwanese, all these persons will be partaking to try and make sure they sensitise each and every person on what makes Belize such a great country.?

The fun starts at ten a.m. on Sunday at the old Technical College campus on Freetown Road with an opening ceremony. After dark activities includes a dance featuring Supa G, Belizean Movements, and D.J. Jew. On Monday, the event will run from eleven in the morning until seven at night.
