The celebration of Belize’s Independence is one of the biggest events Belizeans at home and abroad look forward to and today the hypnotizing vibes are already being felt in all corners of the country. In Orange Walk Town, the wheels have begun spinning when it comes to preparations and planning of the two most anticipated holidays, the tenth and the 21st of September. Today, we asked Mayor Kevin Bernard about this year’s plans for a smooth celebration since last year there was a first recorded casualty.
