San Pedro Lobster Festival in Full Swing
While some people are sadly experiencing June snow (as you can see from the picture below) those in Belize are hot and enjoying San Pedro Lobster Festival in full swing. If you are wondering just how hot is it? San Pedro is a balmy 29 C today but it feels like it could be 37 C or higher, and definitely multiple rinse downs throughout the day weather.
Sunday night was the special VIP dinner at Pirates Treasure restaurant just across the bridge, Monday was Hol Chan Marine office, and the museum was the place to get stamped. Monday night Crazy Canucks was the hot spot for more lobster and live music.
Today you can drop by Sunrise Realty on front street to get your passport stamped, and a lobster fest pin if there are any left. Tonight the feasting continues with Lobster Fest ’74 Grill Night at Pineapples Restaurant, located at Ramon’s Village Resort.

Interesting lobster fact: A lobster shift is press term for a late night shift dating back to the 19th century when the word lobster was commonly used to describe a foolish person. At the time, lobsters were considered to be dimwitted creatures, and the term implies that that only a fool would work midnight hours.
If you love chocolate then tomorrow is the event for you. Make sure to stop by the Belize Chocolate Company on front street. Get your passport stamped and enjoy the gift of a mini chocolate lobster with each chocolate drink. Purchase while stocks last.
