Second annual Banana Fest started last night

Posted: Saturday, May 25, 2019. 9:32 am CST.

By BBN Staff: Last night, the Second Annual Banana Fest began in Stann Creek.

The three-day event is being hosted by the faculty and staff of San Juan Bosco Roman Catholic School in collaboration with Fyffes, Big Creek Group of Companies and United Democratic Party standard Bearer Ivan Williams.

The festival coordinating committee told Breaking Belize News that the event has two main objectives: raising awareness about the importance of bananas in Belize’s economy; and raising funds to help the school build a fence.

“There have been several break-ins. The school campus is in a secluded place, so people come in at night and take whatever they want,” the committee said.

The event kicked off with the Ms. Banana Belt Pageant, where students from various high schools in the district will compete for the title. Today’s events open with a banana-themed parade, followed by a fair where there will be around 40 booths with items on sale and giving information about the banana industry in Belize.

The event closes on Sunday with a day of cultural presentations. The school is asking the public’s support to make the event successful so that they can make the school a safer place.
