Friday Nov 23 :: Holiday Jump Up!, Christiansted 6pm – 10 pm
Jump Up is a St Croix street party put on by the Christiansted Restaurant & Retail Association in downtown Christiansted four times per year. King & Company Streets are blocked off, there is live music on literally every corner, restaurants and vendors offer curbside street food and local retailers remain open late with specials and sidewalk sales. You’ll hear local high school jazz bands, steel pan ensembles and musicians playing everyone’s favorites. Moko Jumbies parade throughout town around 8pm, so have your cameras ready. Local bars keep the party going after 10pm with live entertainment and drink specials. Beware that you don’t park streetside during the day, your car will get towed after 4pm!
