Chetumal Q. Roo Annual Expo Fair

The annual Expo Fair in Chetumal Q. Roo (Mexico) kicked off Sunday, October 19th and will continue through November 4th. This year Belize will represent the country with a booth displaying local Belizean products and traditional food. To help with last weekend’s festivities The Belize Dance Company and Steel Band performed on the 27th.

During the first two days of the fair approximately 150 businesses display and sell their products attracting 5,000 visitors on day one. Throughout the entirety of the Expo the food vendors are a large part of the attraction serving up traditional Mexican tacos, puc-chuc, arracheras, pizzas, and local sweet breads, among other tasty treats.

If you need a little entertainment there are plenty of games to test out your luck. You can play a number of traditional games of chance, including the horse racing (very popular), fishing, darts, buck shot, and bingo. There are plenty of rides to enjoy as well.

If you happen to be in the area and want to stop by the Expo, the fairgrounds are located to the right of Avenida Insurgentes at the foot of the by-pass. Parking is available and recommended in-front of the fair grounds.
