Fund Raiser At The Consejo
Consejo Village, Corozal District, Belize
This event started at 9am and ran until midnight. What you see here is the early afternoon group, with the photos taken between 2 and 4pm.
Many local artisans displayed their wares, and several families provide food and drinks.
Seemingly tireless Denise Fillmore organized a series of games for the kids. First there was a Scavenger Hunt, then a silly water game call Duck Duck Splash followed shortly by a massive water balloon fight. There were a few others that we missed.
Later in the evening there was live music and karaoke, dancing, singing and a good time for all.
Also running this day was the First Consejo Fishing Tourney. It got started at 5am. Several boats took to Corozal Bay, the Rio Hondo and the New River, not heeding the Small Craft Warnings flying up and down the coast. We couldn't stick around to see who caught what but we were told that no fish were caught!
