Placencia Carnival, Hopkins Mango Festival, and some gorgeous pics in the village!

So Placencia had a super charming, old-fashioned (and I mean old - like the rides and games you'd see in a movie from the 50's-70's - some might even call it reminiscent of a horror movie.....anyway...) we were thrilled to have it and I wish we had this permanently. Here's some pics to take you back to old school carnival days (thanks Sue for the great pics!!).....

 This look super complicated and mystical.
 I've definitely seen this in a horror movie.

Who doesn't love old school carnival games???
 Looks totally gorgeous.....
 However - I bet we'd all be making this face, getting on a Ferris wheel from around 1950....
And more cotton candy...
Also this week was Mango Festival in Hopkins....this is pretty self explanatory. If you are headed here, you MUST get a local mango from the farmer's markets scattered all through the village, they are truly one of the greatest things I've eaten here.....

And finally, here are some gratuitous pics from around the village, too charming not to share!

FYI - If you like to follow pics from around the village/Belize - you can follow us on Instagram here! https://www.instagram.com/caribbeanbeachcabanas/
