HARBOUR NIGHT WELCOMES CARNIVAL VICTORY

0

March 8, 2002 – Abundant entertainment is in store at the next Harbour Night in downtown Frederiksted on Wednesday, March 13. From 7:30 to 11:30 p.m., Frederiksted will welcome and entertain the 3,400 passengers and crew of the Carnival Victory and, it's hoped, a large local turnout.
Spotlight will shine on Karamu Afi Cultural Arts, a group established four years ago to promote the study of African culture through the arts. They will present dancers and drummers at all levels of performance.
The Karamu group regularly holds dance and drum classes Saturdays in Frederiksted. They have performed in the past at the Millennium Celebration, a study tour at UVI St. Croix, and the 2002 Agriculture Fair. Officers are Linda Lacy, Celeste Durant and Dion Rivers.
Also on the Harbour Night program are Jamsey, Dem Boys, Junie & The Jungle, and Willard John's Guardians of Culture Moko Jumbies, according to a release.
There will be more than 50 food and arts and crafts booths, and nonprofit fundraising activities of The Caribbean Fusion Band, St. Croix Animal Shelter and St. Croix Deaf Coalition.
Presenting sponsors for Harbour Night are the V.I. Tourism Department, Centennial Wireless, Frederiksted Economic Development Association, Budget Rent-A-Car and Dalton Associates. Divi Carina Bay Casino, McDonalds, International Asset Management, Kapok Management, The Lost Dog and Motown Bar and Restaurant sponsor the nonprofit fundraising activities.
Security improvements, including increased police presence and better lighting on Strand Street, are in place.
Residents should note there will be no parking on Strand Street from 5 p.m. to midnight on Wednesday, March 13. Cars still parked after 5 p.m. will be towed at the owner's expense, by order of V.I. Police Department.
