San Pedro’s little ones shine at annual Festival of Arts


Under the theme ‘Born Talented, Born to Shine,’ the various San Pedro Town pre-schools convened at the San Pedro Lions Den on Thursday, March 23rd to showcase their creativity at the 2017 Festival of Arts. As part of Child Stimulation Month, the annual event saw 14 presentations filled with culture, nationalism, and much talent.
A packed Den saw the participation of students from Little Angels, Ambergris Caye Elementary, San Pedro, ABC, San Pedro’s Shining Stars, Isla Bonita, and Brighter Tomorrow Pre-Schools.
Shortly after 7PM, Master of Ceremonies Pablo Garcia opened the festival and welcomed the audience. Rienny Cayetano delivered a prayer shortly after the singing of the national anthem. Following the short ceremony, the evening program began, and it was all about drama, dance and musical performances. The show included presentations from folkloric to creative, modern presentations and traditional dances.

Each presentation was swift but entertaining, highlighting national aspects about the Belize and its culture. Proud parents made up most of the audience, and they heartily applauded their children as they gave their all during the festival. Organizers thank them and other guests for supporting the event, as well as the participating schools, students and teachers for preparing the evening’s show.
