St. John USVI Festival

On Saturday, Janet and I spent our last full day at Festival in Cruz Bay. It was a colorful, sweet, and beautiful experience. Festival is the biggest party on St. John. It is a month long celebration that starts out with the Pan-O-Rama, which is the battle of the steel pan drums. Even though it was a hot and humid day, the St. Johnians put on quite a show. It was the perfect way to mark our last day on this glorious island.

Laura I was just going to ask how long you were going to be in St. John until I read further. I bet you can't wait to get home to see both of your men!!

Neat costumes!! xoxo

crazy festival pics, love it!!
ours here in the bvi is approaching, sometime early august. they call it the Emancipation Festival. when i first moved here 11 yrs ago, i thought it was a funny time of year to hold "Carnival", but i quickly found that it's not really Carnival here, or in the USVI either, but something quite different than, say, Mardi Gras.

anyway, glad you got to see the one on st. john, something i haven't experienced yet.
