It is Time for a Beach Party – Placencia Lobsterfest
Beach party, who called a beach party?
In celebration of the opening of the lobster season in Belize, the Placencia Peninsula will be having its 15th annual Placencia Lobsterfest. The first Placencia Lobsterfest was in June 1998, it celebrated both the opening of the lobster season and the Placencia Fishermen’s Cooperative’s celebration of Fishermen’s Day. The Belize Tourism Board selected Placencia’s Lobsterfest as Belize Festival Of The Year For 2012!  Today, the celebration continues and has developed into an extravagant event that promotes food – a lobster galore, music, games, prizes, as well as a Lionfish tournament, in an effort to minimize the impact of Lionfish.


You do not want to miss out on an enticing local experience in the tranquil village-paradise of Belize!  On June 28 to June 30 the beach party commences at the beach front in Placencia village.  Culturally diverse dishes all containing lobster will be on sale and will be eligible to enter the Best Lobster Dish Competition. The savory taste of a diverse array of dishes is certainly a treat. Don’t worry if you are not into the taste of lobster, on sale will also be fish, shrimp, chicken, steak, pork and vegan dishes.   
Relax on the beach and sip on the local beer of Belize, Belikin, as you enjoy the sound of local DJ’s and musicians. It is time to kick back and relax on Belize’s #1 Beach Destination, Placencia!
