Krewe de Croix Mardi Croix Parade USVI

St. Croix's version of Mardi Gras - March 1, 2014

Each year, usually on the Saturday before Fat Tuesday, Cane Bay, the scenic north shore of the island, is transformed into a big, colorful party called Krewe de Croix Mardi Croix Parade!

Thousands of residents and visitors joined in the fun, throwing and catching beads and dancing in the street. 

The parade marches from La Valle along the coast to Cane Bay. Lots of food and drink vendors all along the parade path in Cane Bay, and there will also be vendors selling local arts and crafts.
