While the highest concentrate of the Garinagu people were celebrating in southern Belize, those in Belize City were also in the celebration spirit as there was a re-enactment of the arrival of the Garinagu onto the old capital.  Love News was out there to capture the event along with a presentation by the Mayor of Belize City, Darrell Bradley.  According to Bradley, it is essential that Belize City, too, acknowledges the presence and contributions of the Garifuna people.
