Friday, November 4, 2017. Activities leading up to Garifuna Settlement Day began in earnest on Wednesday night at the PG Central Park.

An activity called “Drumming in the Park” was held to bring together Garifuna drummers together for stage performances.

Nightly drumming will continue until November 19th; but according to organizers, the drumming will take place at different blocks in town.

Two national events for Garifuna Settlement Day activities will be held this weekend in Belize City.

These are bein promoted by the National Garifuna Council and are the annual Garifuna Solidarity Masson Saturday morning at the St. Martin’s Church in Belize City and the Miss Garifuna Belize Cultural Pageant later that same day at Bird’s Aisle.

The theme for Garifuna Settlement Day activities is: “Progress lies in unity, always remember.”
