What is Carnaval?
Carnaval is a pre-lenten Mestizo festivity once widely celebrated in Northern Belize. The celebration features songs, dances, and theatrical performances in the community streets. Carnaval marks the transition from the norms of every day community life, to the more somber, penitential practices of the Lenten season. Carnaval continues to be celebrated in communities of the Orange Walk and Corozal Districts and in San Pedro Town, Ambergris Caye.
