Carnival in St. Thomas is a three-day extravaganza, which is the second largest in the Caribbean. It started back in 1912 but it did not become an annual event until 1950. It occurs after the Easter season.

Carnival brings people together which is one of the most important elements of the entire celebration. It is the blending together of the rich West Indian, African, European and American cultures that cause such exuberant and pulsating music. Carnival is the most anticipated cultural event of the year.

It is the festive celebration of music, dancing, singing, parades and masquerades. It draws on African and European customs and there is great music, exotic costumes, dancing, food and drinks. This spectacle has been growing every year in popularity and participation.

Tomorrow (Thursday) is the Food Fair for St. Thomas carnival. Firday is the Children's Parade, Saturday, the adult parade.

Alize will be there, together with a host of Virgin Islands living on the Mainland who will be returning home for the festivities. Lots of people from St. Croix will also be boating and jetting over. Some left yesterday, some will just go over for the big parade. I once went on the day of the big parade and left for the airport to return home when the parade wasn't even halfway over. I'll watch it on TV.
