Hello Melissa,

On St. John the Carnival parade is on the 4th and there are fireworks in the evening.

St. John Carnival
Wed July 4th, 2007 11:00am - Cruz Bay, St. John
Event: Carnival Parade. St. John Carnival celebrations build up to the big finale of the St. John Carnival Parade. The parade takes place in Cruz Bay and includes thousands of people. Come see mocko jumbies, carnival royalty, listen to bands play while colorfully costumed troops of children and adults dance along and enjoy local dishes at the Carnival Village. The parade route starts at the National Park Visitor Center and winds through Cruz Bay.

St. John Carnival
Wed July 4th, 2007 9:00pm - Cruz Bay Harbor, St. John
Event: Fireworks; Bringing the St. John Carnival to a close are the Carnival Fireworks over the Cruz Bay Harbor.

The fireworks at the Yacht Club were great (on STX), but Chuck hurt his hand and I guess the insurance costs would be astro - bloody - nomical now. Hope somewhere else has them.

You can watch them with us from Gallows Point. The only condition is that you bring some Dreyers ice cream. If you can do a nice salad you can even join us for bbq tri tip.

But in any case, good ice cream gets you a great seat.

Thanks for all of your responses. Still not sure if we will be there or not, but if we are we will be on St. Croix. Gallow's Point is on St. John, right? If we were going to be there we would certainly bring your ice cream! Thanks again!

I believe the Gallows to which promoguy refers is the condo development in Cruz Bay on STJ.

I choose to live in the Caribbean in planning for my infinite future, to try to grow accustomed to the heat...

There is always a really nice fireworks display in Frederiksted sponsored by the country club (I'm pretty sure) over the pier. Places to watch from: Cottages/Sandcastles beach, coconuts on the beach, rainbow, aquawest, blue moon etc etc.

The west end fireworks are great... we sat on our back step and watched them last year... the crowd on the pier was HUGE!! The best part was that there was a group of about six children sitting a few yards away from us, and they were just rapt. Adults just don't ooh and ahh over fireworks the way kids do. But, I concur, Sand Castle, Coconuts, any of the west end beach front restaurants would be great for viewing.
