The 60th Anniversary of St. Thomas’ Carnival went off pretty much without a hitch (well, there were a few including the random island-wide electrical blackouts but who cares!).   The Virgin Islands Carnival Committee did an excellent job of putting on a Carnival “for the world to see” and remember!

My family, friends  and I traveled from all over the mainland U.S. to partake in the once-in-a-lifetime festivities and we were not disappointed.   From the stunningly beautiful J’ouvert on the waterfront, to the horse races, to the Steel Pan Jamming on Magen’s Bay and, of course, the 60th St. Thomas Carnival it was truly a memorable occasion.

If you don’t already know the results, Spectrum Band won the Road March for 2012 with “VI PARTY”.  Indeed, there was definitely a lot of whine forward and trash back during the Carnival festivities!
