St. Patricks Day Parade
A big thing on St. Croix. Another reason to party. The parade is comprised of local restaurants and bars that create their own parade floats, as well as some local troupes, and I think the Animal Shelter does a float as well. So, it's a great community event that draws big numbers. After the parade is over, the party moves the Christiansted Boardwalk, where local bar owner and entrepreneur Derek Shupe has a floating stage (sponsored by Heineken) with live bands all day. The boardwalk becomes a sea of green as everyone enjoys the live entertainment and proximity to their favorite watering hole. THIS YEAR is the 48th annual. Date: Sat, March 18th(the Saturday closest to the actual holiday).
