|The annual Kite Festival brings hundreds of people (children and adults) to the beach to fly kites. Under the palapa they had
food for sale, a band playing, and tables for people to build their kites.
|People built their kites in the morning, then flew them for the competition in the afternoon.
|Some were store-bought, but most were hand made, and everybody had TONS of string to really let their kites go high and far.
|Here you can see the "Batman Kite" did make it up into the air, though it didn't go terribly high or far.
|This was our favorite kite (all hand made). It's the flag of Belize surrounded by the Garifuna colors. We never did see it fly,
|We didn't get to stay for the awards because we were meeting people for dinner and had to get ready, but I guess there were
awards for the kite that flew the longest, the highest, the farthest, etc. It's a really nice community event.
|We met friends for dinner at Sunny Side Up Restaurant in town. This is Eric's rib dinner. (The beans that go with the rice
came a moment later and didn't make the picture.)
|Cara's veggie curry - delicious!
