Monkey River Festival – May 24th

I thought I was going to have to miss it this year but no, I lucked out. The kids headed sailing with their dad and and I got to go have fun in Monkey River. Monkey River is a small village south of Placencia that now holds an annual 2 day festival. It’s a nice village to visit at the best of times and even more so when there’s music, entertainment, food and drink available.

The kids were having fun in the river.

The DJ kept the music flowing.

From his palm tree studio.

There were competitions to be won. Like coconut husking.

Slippery Pole

The Strong Man Competition.
Which involved dragging a sand bag

Running with cement blocks

And lugging 2 big lobster pots.

Make sure you don’t miss it next year!
