The Belize City Council hosted a press conference on Tuesday, August 22, 2017 with the purpose of establishing parking and vending regulations for carnival day. The council also finalized their update on the carnival route and gave reassurances on the safety to be expected at the crime hotspots at Mayflower Street and Conch Shell Bay.

The route starts at Caesar Ridge Road, into Central American Boulevard, right into Vernon Street, left onto Bel-China Bridge and onto Douglas Jones, through Cinderella Plaza, onto Kelly Street, Baymen Avenue and finally onto Princess Margaret Drive. The endpoint of this year’s carnival is the Marion Jones Sporting Complex, the first time in many years.

People residing along the new carnival route will, according to Councilor Phillip Willoughby, receive a flyer asking them not to have their vehicles parked along the route. Secondly, persons that might be conducting business along the route are asked to kindly contact the council or the Carnival Commission prior to carnival.
