Here’s what’s on tap at the V.I. Legislature this week.
With schools across the territory getting ready for a Sept. 2 opening date, V.I. Education Commissioner Donna Frett-Gregory told the community the Education Department is focused on "putting in the framework we need to support our students, our teachers and our administrators."
Majorette troupes, high school marching bands, Queens, Princesses and other assorted parade participants will line up to continue the tradition and cleave to the cultural roots of the Crucian Carnival. The parade will be illuminated not by oil lamps but by city street lights and Christmas lights twinkling from local businesses.
Then everyone on St. Croix is invited to show their island Christmas spirit Saturday by showing up or even participating in the traditional Ole Time Night Parade with Stanley and the Ten Sleepless Knights.
