Memories from the National Agriculture & Trade Show


Thousands of people came out to the showgrounds this year.  And there was a greater security presence than we've ever seen before. We had lunch, made a few purchases and toured the grounds.  It took a few hours to make our way through it all.

One of the things that stood out for me this year was the behind the scenes action.  The trash, the clotheslines hanging from the trucks, the police, security guards, and Defense force personnel walking the grounds.

In spite of the long  line of cars waiting to park and enter the showgrounds, the throng of people we had to navigate through to get from one end of the grounds to the other,and the horse droppings we had to be careful of,  it was exciting to experience and we're glad that we took the time to enjoy this slice of Belize culture!
