February 22, 2020. Parade starts at 12pm...party goes until?...
usually on the Saturday before Fat Tuesday, Cane Bay, on the scenic
north shore of the island, is transformed into one big colorful and
noisy party and parade...St. Croix's version of Mardi Gras! You can arrive early
and get breakfast at one of the waterfront restaurants and then join in
the revelry as the parade marches through. The parade travels from La
Valle along the coast to Cane Bay. You will find food and drink vendors
all along the parades path in Cane Bay along with vendors selling local
arts and crafts. Be sure to try some of the local food...yum!
