The San Pedro Business Association [SPBA] has released the schedule of events for the 2012 San Pedro Lobster Festival. The one-week celebration is going to be bigger and better than ever with the theme “Lobster Crawl 2012”
This year the event organizers have added a new dimension to the festival, the introduction of Lobster Crawl 2012 passport. The passport, which will be available shortly, will allow you to collect stamps at every venue during the week’s celebrations. Each stamp will entitle the passport holder with a ticket to enter into a grand raffle of a vacation package for two to the San Pedro Lobster Festival 2013. The package includes complimentary hotel stays, tours, golf cart rental, bar tabs, dinner and many more surprises. The raffle will be drawn on the night of the Block Party.
The annual San Pedro Lobsterfest Block Party has always been the main highlight of the week long festivities and this year promises to top the chart. Entertainment for the week will feature Belize’s well-known Garifuna Collective, Panerrifix Steel Band hailing from Our Lady of Guadalupe RC School in Belmopan and San Pedro’s Gino and the Shack Shakers.
