Hello everyone, and happy Friday! I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving celebration yesterday! There’s a great event happening at Mongoose Junction today. If you happen to be lucky enough to be on island, you’re not going to want to miss this!
Mongoose Junction will kick off the holiday season at 4 p.m. today with their annual evening in the courtyard holiday event, which will feature live music, delicious food, cold drinks and, of course, some fantastic shopping.
Musical guests will include steel pan from the Love City Pan Dragons from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., From Broheem with Love, and Lauren & Bo from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and there will also be a special guest – Moko Jumbie Yisreal Petersen.
Participating businesses include Arawak Expeditions, Bamboula, Bajo El Sol Gallery & Art Bar, St. John Brewer’s Brewtique, Caravan Gallery, Imperial Dynasty, Island Fancy, Little Switzerland, Lulee, Made on St. John, Just Beach, Portico, Sugar Birds, The St. John Experience Gallery, Virgin Abis, 1864 The Restaurant, Greengo’s Caribbean Cantina, Sun Dog Café, The Tap Room and St. John Scoops.
Mongoose will continue with the holiday spirit next weekend, as well. On Saturday, December 3rd, the Animal Care Center of St. John – an organization you all know I absolutely love – will offer gift wrapping onsite from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. The Sing St. John’s children choir will be performing starting at 3:30 p.m. on December 3rd. Broheem and Pam will be performing as well.
And mark your calendars because the All Island Holiday party, also known as the Prom, will be returning this year. That event is scheduled for December 17th. And we hear Santa is going to make an appearance closer to Christmas. We will keep you all posted on that one!
In the meantime, have a great day, and happy shopping!
