Crucian Christmas Festival Organization Chooses Theme

The Crucian Christmas Festival Organization has announced that the theme for the 2010-2011 Festival Season is “Play Mas, 1st Class!” The executive board members thanked Jennifer Springer for submitting the theme. She will be rewarded with tickets to some festival shows, a handmade mahogany plaque and VIP seating at the Adults Parade.
The theme embodies the advancements that festival has achieved in the past few years. St. Croix has been leading the way in the Virgin Islands in festival and carnival. Festival has many firsts, including: Party Monarch, the Night Parade, the Mini Village, an interactive Web site, live Internet streaming of Village events and the Adults Parade, and the revival of the Band-O-Rama, to name a few.
The executive board invites individuals and businesses to be an active part of the Crucian Christmas Festival. Entrepreneurs are encouraged to create festival T-shirts and other festival items to sell. Businesses are encouraged to sponsor a portion of festival, keeping in mind that thousands of residents and visitors attend the events, including the pageants, Festival Village and the parades.
Applications for Miss St. Croix and the Prince, Princess and Duchess pageants are still available. A meeting will be held for the Calypso Monarch competition at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 30, at the Department of Agriculture conference room at the Rudolph Shulterbrandt Agricultural Complex. Contestants are also being sought for the Party Monarch and the Band-O-Rama competitions. Anyone who is interested in being a parade marshal or in any of the competitions should send an e-mail to stxfestival@yahoo.com to get information.
The Festival Village will open on Dec. 30 for 10 big days. The Children’s and Adults’ Parades will be held on Friday, Jan. 7 and Saturday, Dec. 8.
