Consejo Area Food and Art Festival
at Casa Blanca By The Sea

The second annual Consejo Area Food and Art Festival was held on Sunday July 8th at the Casa Blanca By The Sea hotel. This was well organized, heavily advertised and much anticipated event. There was lots of great food to be consumed and live music scheduled for the late afternoon and evening. Unfortunately, Mother Nature didn't cooperate. We had a lot of rain the night before with more forecast, so with Corozal-Consejo Road a muddy mess, many of the families expected from Corozal and other points South didn't make the trip.

The disappointing turnout didn't stop those who came from having a great time. Several local artist displayed their wares while a several local families set up booths to provide food and drink. The Consejo Yacht Club offered rides on one of their Catamarans, as well as running a couple of fund raising games like "Chicken Drop" and "Darts".

The band was setting up as we left to avoid the next rain shower. The festivities went on until around 7PM.

We would welcome any photos or comments from the late afternoon and evening doings to complete the coverage of this event
