Home Business St. Thomas business MIRACLE ON MAIN STREET FRIDAY



The Committee to Revive our Culture is joining forces with the St. Thomas-St. John Chamber of Commerce Friday, Dec. 17, with the celebration of what has become the annual "Miracle on Main Street." This year's event will be a little different.
In previous years, the event has started in the evening, however, this year's festivities begin at 10 a.m. in Emancipation Garden with the opening of the Committee's Christmas Village.
Locally made foods, baked goods, plants, crafts and more will be exhibited at the Village, Committee Coordinator Dorothy Elskoe said. More than 40 participants have signed up for the event.
Starting at 12 noon, she said, there will be a concert featuring the native Rhythms band from St. Croix and the St. Croix Heritage Dancers. The band will perform throughout the afternoon.
Chamber Executive Director Joe Aubain expects the best "Miracle"ever. "In addition to the Village, we have the North Star Steel Band in the afternoon,"he said.
Beginning at 6 p.m., the music will be nonstop. The sounds of IMAGI, Fusion Band, Voices of Love Choir, Caribbean Chorale and the St. Thomas All Stars are just a few of the musicians performing.
As if this weren't enough, dancing to the music will be the Mocko-Jumbie Jamboree, Mungo Niles Cultural Dancers, Mocko Jumbie Bacchanal and the Mortison Youth Mocko Jumbies from St. John.
Aubain said that "the lights, the sounds, the shopping and, of course, Santa, should put everybody in the holiday spirit." He urged everyone to come to the celebration, which is organized by the Chamber's Destination Downtown Committee. More than 50 stores will be open, most until 9 p.m., and Main Street will become a mall for the evening.
