Lobster Fest 2012 stallsKimani and Jimmy enjoying Sunday afternoon!

It began on Friday with one of the most tightly contested Miss Lobster Fests in history and the rest of the weekend did not disappoint too!!  Congratulations again to Miss Sylvia Joseph – she was definitely Raggamuffin’s favorite choice and I believe the island too.  However, it must be said, in any given other year, any one of the other contestants could have been the winner!!!!

The turnout was enormous .. the streets from Friday onwards were teaming with those wanting fun and of course lobster and we were all rewarded with both!!  After the very successful pageant on Friday night, contestants and the audience dance did not end until 4am.  And again on Saturday, the big bash, the party did not finish until 5am!!!

The atmosphere was electric for the entire weekend, everybody was out to enjoy the music and the energy that this annual celebration creates.  The Split also (as usual) had their say and provided additional entertainment for the weekend.  Many of the night time revelers nursing their hangover with yet another beer or similar during the day – not forgetting their very memorable greasy pole hanging out on to the water causing much attention!!

This is the one time of the year that the lights are really upon Caye Caulker as San Pedro and Placencia had already had their Lobster Fest last weekend.   We shone, we did ourselves proud in true Caye Caulker style – bashment – for anyone that wanted to celebrate with us!!

Thank you, thank you and thank you again to the Caye Caulker Lobster Fest committee – each year just keeps getting better – our expectations for 2013 are high!!
