The hours of fun begin at 7 pm and continue on until 11 pm each evening that a ship is docked for fuel bunkering. The Crucian Cultural Bazaar features St. Croix's traditional Mocko Jumbie stilt dancers; Steel Pan musicians; the Island's official music: "Quelbe" performed by local artists; Calypso, Quadrille Dancers, African Dancers & Drummers, local Arts & Crafts, sweets, treats, lots of great shopping and much, much more. Local residents and tourists alike come to Frederiksted during each of these events to participate in the festivities and to extend a warm welcome to the passengers and crew to the Island of St. Croix.
