Tuesday, August 12, 2014. AARON HUMES Reporting: The September Celebrations is less than a month away and Belizeans can look forward to a packed calendar of events that has already kicked off with last Saturday’s National Song Competition Final.
According to Communications Officer for NICH Shari Williams, it is a mix of old and new, with star power and serious issues on tap.
Among new events on the calendar are special performances by the visiting Calypso Rose and Machel Montano, as well as a lecture on Belize’s economic development scheduled for September 17.
Official ceremonies to open September Celebrations will take place on St. George’s Caye on August 31; the Expo Belize fair takes place in the first weekend of September, Carnival in the second; and official ceremonies for St. George’s Caye Day and Independence Day take place on Wednesday, September 10 in Belize City and Sunday, September 21 in Belmopan.
This year’s theme for the 216th anniversary of the Battle of St. George’s Caye and 33rd anniversary of national independence is “Industrious Hands, Intelligent Minds, Together for Belize.”
