St. Croix hosts its Carnival between Christmas and Three Kings Day. The Crucian Christmas Carnival (formerly called Festival) sees events in both Christiansted and Frederiksted including calypso shows, Latin music venues, food fairs, horse races, parades, and the village.

Who is the royalty representing St. Croix this year? Who were the past royalties of the Virgin Islands? Why is there royalty in the Carnivals of the Virgin Islands? How and when did it come about? What is its history? Was it celebrated in the days of the Danish West Indies? 

Do you know the answer to any of these questions? Call in at 347-237-4374 and share your comments or ask your questions. The Doctor may know the answers but loves interacting with you, the listeners!

Now, some changes to announce!

  • Effective January 3, 2015 the show has been expanded to a full hour.
  • However, the schedule has been changed to the first, the fourth, and sometimes, the fifth Saturday monthly. 

We extend our invitation to our 6 f-words: faithful, friendly, family, friends, followers, and fans!

Please jump onboard and pass the word!
