Everyone who’s familiar with Belize knows that September is a time for celebration. Every year Belizeans throw a month-long party to celebrate our History, Culture and Independence. Here’s a glimpse of what it’s like to be a part of the celebrations here in September.

From day one, everybody is gearing up for the big party…
