Well, if you think two weeks of partying at the La Ceiba Carnival is a big deal, then welcome to a “FULL” month of partying in San Pedro Sula at the “June fair ” which boasts fireworks, carnivals, cultural events, float parades and much more. San Pedro Sula this June is celebrating the 479th anniversary of the city. This year the San Pedro Sula gang snuck an extra day in there!!! The fair officially begins on May 31st! Like having a full month isn’t enough LOL. (In reality it un-officially starts tomorrow Friday May 29th with un-official Canavalitos and parties everywhere)
All of this is coordinated by the “Feria Juniana 2015” (June Fair 2015) Committee, and takes place every year.
The inauguration of the fair will begin with a two hour laser light show held at the main soccer field known as “Francisco Morazan” located on the famous boulevard of San Pedro Sula and begins at 2:00 PM so don’t be late. Several national artists will be presenting their music. The entrance fee is the enormous amount of “FREE” actually you have to show up so whatever it cost you to get there.
The municipality of San Pedro SUla has budgeted over 500,000 Lempiras on security alone throughout the duration of the fair.
The president of the June Fair Committee, said that they will continue with the tradition of the previous years that focused on the art and culture of Honduras.
He also said that the June Plaza (Plaza Juniana) is located as it is every year, in the installations of the 105th Infantry Brigade. He clarified that the facility will not allow gambling of any kind in any of the installations around San Pedro Sula, as it is prohibited by the Municipality of San Pedro Sula.
