Jump Up - St. Croix's version of a Mardi Gras

Last night 5/2/2008 we went to Jump Up in Christiansted. (you know there are 2 main towns in St. Croix, Christiansted and Frederiksted). It is a big party downtown and St. Croix does it 4 times a year! I think our favorite is the Moko Jumbies of which I have pictures below. There are bands and music everywhere! Discounts at the stores, thus this is the night you want to shop for sure! Food stands with Chicken and Shrimp on a Stick and specialty drinks in coconuts, local cuisines. Check the St. Croix web site for dates if you are coming here and see if your vacation is during a 'Jump Up" because you will so enjoy it!
