Good-bye to Juan Carnaval!

On Ash Wednesday, the locals performed the last Carnaval tradition of 2009 - the burning of Don Juan Carnaval, a life-sized stuffed doll. Spectators accompanied him at a special gathering held at the Old Football Field at 8:30pm. The purpose behind the burning of Don Juan Carnaval is the conclusion of another year of Carnaval. Thanks to Mayor Elsa Paz for visiting Ambergris Today along with Don Juan Carnaval.
