Emancipation Garden, several blocks on Main Street, and several more along the waterfront will be brightly lit and full of people drawn to the sights and sounds of Christmastime on St. Thomas. Stores that usually close at 5 pm will be open with shopping, drink and food specials, soca bands and steel pan bands, and majorettes strutting their stuff. Grab a beverage of your choice (yes, you can carry it out!) and get a good spot on the waterfront apron to see the festive, fun and funny lighted boat parade. Or, if crowds aren't for you, join the crew at Tickles Dockside Bar in Crown Bay Marina, where many of the lighted boats start and end the parade. Call (340) 776-0100
