10th September – Caye Caulker style!

On September 12, 2011 in Caye Caulker

The Split The Split Wall

For those who may not know it, back in 1798 Belize was known as British Honduras. On 10th September the Spanish tried to invade Belize but they were defeated by the Baymen on our beautiful St George’s Caye – and thus British Honduras became Belize!

To commemorate this Victory each year we celebrate 10th September and Caye Caulker is no exception! The weekend commenced with the Fire Engine Parade, with the two Caye Caulker fire truck being flanked by the traffic committee and the police … not to mention the many golf carts and pedestrians – the 10th had began!

The sound system The Split

The weekend following was all about the party … once again the Split was the main focus of the island and it started 1pm on Saturday. There were two bands brought out for the festivities (Electrosounds and Abraxas – rock band), plus DJ Chico. There was a hot and heavy ‘Tornado’ competition on Saturday night … we still cannot work out who won that one though … however, if Paige were here it may have been more clear!??!

The weekend has us all rather tired, hungover but happy … roll on 21st September – Independence Day!!!
