106: “Carnival” US Virgin Islands

It’s Carnival baby!” Those words sum up this April finale to Carnival season. Non-stop action to the beat of calypso music, this show is lively and definitely colorful. This Fantastic Festivals program covers a variety of fun activities: The food fair with its Caribbean tasty dishes, the Calypso King contest, the wild early morning J’ouvert party and the race boat competition. The two highlights of the Carnival are the children’s parade followed the next day by the very impressive and action filled adult’s parade. Off the Beaten Path: Leaving St Thomas, the crew travels to the Island of St John where they visit an ecologically friendly resort called Maho Bay. Next stop is the Island of St. Croix for some deep sea sport fishing, a visit with bush doctor Ras Mulumaba who shows off the natural “pharmacy” that grows wild around the ruins of an old sugar plantation, and some local cooking at Harvey’s restaurant in Christiansted.
