While it is a tradition in Belize it will apparently also become on for Sugar City as revelers took to the streets of town and got themselves covered in mud and paint. It was a first time experience for them as it was for us.

At the break of dawn on Sunday September 21st, while most Orange Walkneos were asleep, party goers bathed themselves with mud and paint as they took part in the first jouvert to hit the streets of Orange Walk Town.

Completely covered in mud and with the excitement that categorizes jouvert revelers invaded the town as the real fun got underway without any rules or regulations.

Of course there was plenty of mud being served during the jouvert and organizer Eldrid Neal ensured that participants and spectators got a taste of the morning’s specialty.

Eldrid Neal- Organizer Jouvert

“I am telling you folks it is bigger than we expected, you will see it for yourself as the truck comes up, Orange Walkenos go out, they didn’t go home so we know it is the Jouvert Spirit and I will say it is going to  be bigger and better next year."

As the sun began opening its eyes the crowd grew and the dancing continued as the loud music invaded the entire center of town and party goers shifted into fifth gear as they celebrated Belize’s 33 years of Independence.


“This is amazing and I want to have it next year and for the next coming years and it is fun.”

Carmelita Perez - Reporter

“What do you think about this year Jouvert?”


“I love it Carmelita…big up”

As mentioned by this year’s organizer, the event is expected to take place next year only that it will be bigger and better.
