Boaters Needed for 20th St. Croix Christmas Boat Parade

A Christmas Boat on Christiansted Harbor from a December past

St. Croix’s Boat Parade Committee is calling on all boaters to share the joy of the Christmas Season by joining the 2018 Christmas Boat Parade on Saturday, Dec. 8.

The Christmas Boat Parade and fireworks display is an exciting part of the month-long Caribbean Christmas season on St. Croix. The boat parade in Christiansted Harbor is one of the largest and most popular annual events on the island.

This year is the 20th Anniversary edition. After cancelling the 2017 parade (blame it on Maria), the committee is working hard to make the 20th extra special. Plans are well underway for the best fireworks display ever.

The organizers need everyone’s help to get more boats to join the parade.
