The 4th annual Christmas Music Festival and Parade is next Saturday, Dec. 6. The event’s organizer,. Steve Simon, said it begins at Mongoose Junction with Santa leading a torch lit parade through Cruz Bay, around the ferry dock and then up to Winston Wells Ball Field. “Live Christmas music fills the air with our own children’s steel pan band and plenty of Reggae sounds. The parade route is filled with Christmas spirit as locals and visitors line both sides of the street.” Once at the ball field, Santa will give each child a gift.
The music concert, set to begin at 7:30 p.m features 13-year-old Jazz piano prodigy Matt Wigler and his trio.
Another teen music sensation, 13-year-old Jazz trumpeter Tyler Lindsay (pictured at the right) and his band will also entertain.
The show's headliner is ‘the Diva of all Divas’ Maryel Epps.
