San Pedro Lobster Festival lovers coming since 2009
The Jansen & Racut family are returning on the 13tb of June to San Pedro, Belize. They have been coming every June to attend Lobster Fest since 2009. Wishing the Belize fishermen a great lobster season. Ready for a good time at the Lobster Fest events all week and to finish the week with a bang at the Lobster Fest Block Party 2013! Jennifer Jansen
I am not surprised the Jansen & Racut families are returning for their 5th year of San Pedro lobsterfest fun. As I was downloading the lobsterfest pictures of the annual block party that Jennifer sent, I was taken back in time. It made me all the more excited for Lobsterfest 2013, so many choices of delicious food and drinks, the cute dresses, great live music, the time we had the biggest downpour and hanging out with friends. What could be a better recipe for a great party. Make sure you toss a couple of ziplocks in your purse or pocket if you have any electronic gear, it always rains to some degree at the big block party. Thankfully decoration meltdown was the worst weather related mishap to date.
Here is the official San Pedro Lobster Festival 2013 event schedule.
The Lobster crawl was a big hit last year and the 2013 passports,will be available in advance for this years Lobster Crawl. Watch San Pedro Lobster Festival Facebook page for the announcement. Lobsterfesters can get their passport stamped at every party, more stamps = more chances to win vacation for two to the San Pedro Lobster Festival 2014. The lucky person will be announced the night of the big block party.
* Here is a great way to get a stamp. Visits Hol Chan Marine Reserve can get your crawl passport stamped when you give the park ranger your park ticket.
Lobster Festival tip – Start taking your vitamins now it will be a busy week of partying and don’t forget to leave a big glass of water and a couple of Tylenol on your night stand just in case 🙂
