Boat Parade

Hello all,

Just wanted to say, I watched the boat parade on St Croix, over the Web Cam from Ohio, and enjoyed it so much. My 71 year old father watched it with me, and he is in wonder over the whole computer/web cam thing anyway. Just now getting him to look at a computer. Anyway, it looked as if it was a great time. The boats were beautiful.

Thanks,
Lona

We had dinner at Rumrunners and watched the parade from there. A good time shared by LOTS of Crusians!

Hi Marty,

Here is the info which I found on the St. Thomas This Week Website.

DECEMBER 15, 6 P.M. Miracle on Main Street
Main Street, Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas Enjoy an arts and crafts festival in the streets of St. Thomas’ capitol, followed by music, shopping and dining from 6 to 10 pm. Most of the stores on Main Street stay open late on this special night.
For information, call 776-0100

DECEMBER 15, 6:30 P.M. Lighted Boat Parade
Charlotte Amalie Waterfront, St. Thomas Watch a parade of spectacularly decorated craft as they cruise along the harbor. For information, call 776-0100 or 774-3944

Sounds like a lot of fun. My husband and I are planning on being there for sure!!!!

Hi again,

Does anyone have any suggestions for a place to have dinner that will also have a great view of the Boat Parade?

Tavern on the Waterfront will have the best view. The Petite Pump Room the second best. The Greenhouse, Wendy's (where the Hard Rock used to be, NOT at Mandela Circle!), maybe Oceana, Happy Buzzard, Paradise Point, grab some food to go from the BBQ trailer and sit on the apron on the waterfront.....

As of last week the Miracle on Main Street Committee was still searching for boats to participate in the parde. If you know anyone who's interested in doing so please encourage them to call the numbers Mell provided above because they are desperate!!
