On September 21, 1981, Belize officially became independent from British rule. Belizeans at home and abroad celebrate the 30th anniversary of the historic day, with both joy and pride and this year also with a touch of sadness. The Father of the Nation, Rt. Hon. George Cadle Price passed away mere days before his beloved nation turned 30. But still, we celebrate his legacy, with honor, humility and joy, Long Live Rt. Hon. George Cadle Price, and LONG LIVE BELIZE!
A huge island parade with joyful Belizeans ready to spread cheer in great costumes. Beautiful floats paraded down the streets of San Pedro. It was a very special 30th anniversay here.
