Saturday, Dec. 6 at 6 p.m.: St. John Children's Christmas Parade
Celebrating its fourth anniversary, the St. John Children's Christmas Parade has become a tradition with many of the island's groups participating. It is truly a parade for all ages.
Starting in front of Mongoose Junction, Santa leads the 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 St. John's 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.
Upon reaching the ballfield, Santa will be giving every child in attendance a free Christmas gift, so plan on coming early and staying late to enjoy a fabulous free jazz, blues and gospel concert.
The annual holiday family event is sponsored by the Angels at Merchants Commercial Bank, The Lumberyard Complex, First Bank, American Paradise Realty, Holiday Homes, Tropical Properties, Chelsea Drugs, Carlson Construction, Catered To, The Westin Resort St. John, Theodore Tunick & Company, Donald Sussman and Steve and Helen Simon.
