Carnival gets serious now

St. John Festival is in its final, exciting, fun-filled days.

Festival Village opens in the parking lot across from the Post Office this evening. Dozens of colorfully-painted food and beverage stands, constructed of plywood, offer visitors a smorgasbord of island food and beverage treats. 

Numerous Virgin Island musical groups can be counted on to be performing in the bandstand, providing a rhythmic background to the fun and games and food in the Village. The Village is open until Monday evening.

The final day of  St. John Celebration, Monday is highlighted by the Festival Parade, featuring music, floats, costumes and performers. It begins at the National Park headquarters and will wind through Cruz Bay.

Celebration will be capped Monday evening, the 5th, with the traditional 'July 4th Fireworks'.  The flares and aerial bombs will be launched from a barge out in the bay.
