By BBN Staff: The 9th annual Belize City Street Art Festival is set for February 23 and the Institute of Creative Arts is promising that this one will be bigger and better than last year.
The event, scheduled to last from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m., will be held in downtown Belize City on Albert Street, starting at the corner of Albert and Orange Street and ending at the corner of Albert and Dean Street, with activities on several side streets including Bishop and Church Street.
The festival is set to feature over 30 booths with vendors selling items ranging from perfumes and makeup to jewelry and handicrafts.
Coordinator of the event, Karen Vernon, said that the festival will feature old favorites such as the face painting and youth stage, along with new attractions like the living statue competition.
“For the first time in Belize City, we’ll be having the Pok a Tok ball game,” Vernon explained. “For people in Orange Walk, they may be used to seeing the game, but it’s a new experience for us here in the city.”
Vernon said that there are still booths available for those wanting to sell their items. Interested persons are encouraged to visit the Bliss Center for Performing Arts for application forms, or message the Street Art Festival Facebook page.
