Belize City, Belize – August 24th, 2012 – Music, culture and fun in the sun were in abundance at this year’s Seine Bight Day Weekend. Seine Bight Day Weekend was held on August 17th to August 19th, 2012 in Seine Bight Village, Stann Creek District and was one of the numerous events occurring around the country. Other festivities were the San Joaquin Fiesta and the Willow’s Bank Fyah Haat Fest.
“The funds raised from the weekend are to be used to build a basketball court in the village, which is definitely needed,” shared Francisco Palacio, Chairman of Seine Bight Village. “Everyone enjoyed themselves with the games, contests, music and live entertainment. During the three days, the beach was full of life. Participants were up early in the morning to await the upcoming activities and stayed up late into the night for its festivities. I’d like to thank everyone who made the Seine Bight Day Weekend a great success.”
For more than ten years, the village of Seine Bight has been hosting this celebration, which commemorates the existence of the community. Every year, the event gets bigger, with many Belizeans travelling down south to join the villagers in their celebration. Fun competitions at the event included swimming contests, coconut husking contests, and Punta contests among others. Cash prizes and giveaways kept contestants striving to win at every try. During the night, live music and entertainment by Belize’s very own renowned artists kept everyone dancing all night long. Next year’s Seine Bight Day weekend promises to be even better!
