I have been hearing so much about this event that provides the youths of Belize with an outlet to showcase their talents in drama, dancing, poetry, and the arts, and this was an event I knew I had to see. This event is the National Festival of Arts, where children from all over the nation of Belize showcase their talents in the arts.
Not knowing exactly what to expect, I made my way down to the Bliss Center for the Performing Arts and was amazed that they had a packed audience in the lower and upper levels. The spotlight shone on these talented chidren performing with enthusiasm and pouring their entire self into their performances.
Performances continue tomorrow at 10 AM for the Juniors and 4 PM for the Seniors. On Friday Night at 7 PM they will have a Literary Evening with poems and more. The event will end on Saturday with performances with Ozzy the clown and Friends, Chispin and Lucas Locuaz alonside the Playground Posse with performances at 3PM and 6PM.
Come out and support the youths of Belize!
