A two-day holiday-themed festival of gospel music will begin Saturday Dec. 2 at the Winston Wells ball field, the St. John Source reported. The second annual Christmas music festival will be produced by Steve Simon, organizer of many of the island’s outstanding music events. "It’s an opportunity for the community to celebrate the holiday season with our children and to put the love back in Love City," he told the Source.
Among the artists scheduled for the free Saturday evening concert are St. John’s own pan-man, Victor Provost, and Michael Dunstan, who Simon described as "the male version of Aretha Franklin."
On Sunday night, Santa Claus will be grand marshal of a candlelit parade from Mongoose Junction to the ball field. He’ll be distributing presents. The free concert that evening will feature Maryel Epps and the Eco People.
