Is sitting by a fireplace wrapped in a blanket with hot cocoa your norm for the Holidays? Change it up with some Caribbean spice on St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Now, we do still love our holiday music, lights, carols and Christmas trees, but we enjoy a beautiful palm tree in place of an evergreen tree!
One fun activity to enjoy on St. Croix is the annual Christmas Lighted Boat Parade, taking place this Saturday, December 10, 2011. The parade is in Christiansted Harbor and comes with all the Crucians; you can imagine flooding the docks, restaurants and their own boats moored in Christiansted Harbor to view these brightly lit vessels filled with holiday cheer.
The event begins with a Seaborne seaplane formation fly-by just before the decorated boats begin their route. There are also many activities on the boardwalk and around town to include dancing, Moko Jumbies, caroling, food vendors, fireworks and much, much more. Just one of the many fabulous traditions you will experience here on St. Croix!
