Hello,

Betty - funny but not likely for someone living in St. Thomas to not know Carnival events are going on. wink This is the week that folks really get into the Carnival spirit, it being the big finale week and all. So definitely appropriate to say its Carnival Time!!

In any case, Promoguy yes its almost over. Big concert last night, Jouvert was this morning, parades tomorrow and Saturday. Fireworks Saturday night. Village open until Saturday with a Calypso and last lap event that night.

Hi Islander,

Thanks!

And yes, since the Carnival festivities are in full force here on STT, I thought I might put up a post for people who are not presently here and who might not be familiar with this event.

Hey I always thought "RAIN DON'T STOP THE CARNIVAL!"

and the opening of the Village was postponed one day because of rain?

It may almost be over but the Post Office was open and the lobby was deserted at lunch time today; bored clerks were watching a tape of Carnival that was playing on the lobby tv. Also, Cost-U-Less is closed Saturday for Carnival.

The village was open, it was just the official ceremonies that were postponed.
