St Patrick’s Day traditionally is a big celebration on our island of St Croix, and this year was no exception. The streets of Christiansted and Frederiksted were colored green, as thousands used the day as a reason to have a party.

The 42nd annual Christiansted parade started at 11 AM with the theme “Celtic Crucian.” The 25 entries benefted the Virgin Islands Special Olympics. Sponsors were Seaborne Airlines, Mongoose, Isle 95, Plaza Extra, Bellows International, the VI National Park, VI Police Dept., the Dept. of Health and the VI Waste Management Authority.
