SORT BY Relevancy
The first carnival was staged in 1912 during the final years of Danish occupation and lapsed during World War I. Revived in 1952, carnival has become the second largest festival in the Caribbean.
A month-long series of dazzling pageants and talent shows is held to choose royalty to rein over the festival. Fun events such as a boat race, Greased Pig Contest and Toddlers Derby entertain everyone at the festivities.
A series of elimination contests to crown top performers are called Calypso Tents. Calypsonions offer satirical commentary on the state of the islands, oftentimes mocking the shenanigans of politicians. Other popular events held during Carnival is j'ouvert, a morning jump up, a food fair presenting the islands’ best traditional eats and a competition to crown the King and Queen of the parade troupes.

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?

Keri D. Singleton has worn more than a few hats in two decades of working in and around the music industry.

A month later, he began hosting a popular weekly internet radio show called ‘Keri’s Korner’ on F.L.O Empire Radio in New York City. Keri D. Singleton appeared in the January/February, 2014 issue of Soul Essence Magazine which was followed by a celebrity studded event celebrating the one year anniversary of his radio show. Keri D.

It’s another rare Friday where the guys are forced to keep the Frat House Sports Garage open late – just too much work to do before tomorrow’s Saturday night NASCAR racing at Richmond International Raceway.
First though we're looking back over last Sunday’s “Bristol Marathon” which saw 11 cautions, four rain delays, and a G-W-C finish. Matt Kenseth picked up his first checkered since 2013 while the “Pesky Boys” were wrecking each other and Denny Hamlin, with sudden mysterious neck pain, was replaced with wunderkind Erik Jones. What to make of it all? The “guys in the garage” are chatting it up.
We’ve got rare Saturday night racing at Richmond and we’ll have our own Brandon on the ground track-side. While drivers like Jimmie Johnson, Kevin Harvick and Denny Hamlin have a history here, could we see Jeff Gordon or Tony Stewart get their first win of the season?
There’s drag racing going on this weekend at the Royal Purple Raceway, and Frat House Mike will be updating NHRA in his report on activities in Houston.
Uncle Mark is going Over the Wall; Sidekick’s got his Fantasy picks; and the rest of the guys are jumping in with their Eat-My-Dust Picks!
As it’s Friday night, we’ve got the beer . . . if you’re stopping by, you bring the pizza . . . and your comments to the Frat House Sports Garage . . . by giving a call to 347 - 826 - 9964!
DAVID OMAN (Producer/Creator/Co-Writer) A native of Los Angeles, Oman has been intrigued by the paranormal from his early childhood and has been curious about the Spirit World ever since. In 1999 Oman started helping his father build the house on Cielo Drive, just down the drive from the infamous Sharon Tate Murders aka the Manson Murders – after 2 years of living in the house he created a story based upon his experiences in the home with the activity, titled House at the End of the Drive. He self financed the movie and shot it on location at his home and brought his story to life. Since he moved into the house the activity has been quite apparent so much so that the Oman house has been on seven paranormal reality shows, Ghost Hunters, Dead Famous Live, Searching for Satan, My Ghost Story, in July 2013 he was on History Channel 2 show, Haunted History and SyFy's, Paranormal Witness. February 15th 2014 the season 9 premiere episode of Ghost Adventures aired and it was the highest rated episode to date, it dealt with the investigation at the Oman house. Recently David was on Ghost Adventures After Shocks on March 28 2015. He has also been featured on Larry King Live, EXTRA and TMZ. His house has also been visited by Lisa Williams and James Van Pragh and they have had wild experiences here as well. Recently David has open up his home for private ghost investigation/tours with a paranormal research group to give people the chance to go on a real life ghost hunt just like the shows and your along for the ride of your life investigating one of America's most haunted locations. David said, “I wanted to give a few people the chance to experience a real life Paranormal Investigation like those on TV but we go all out with 14 infrared cameras canvassing the home and my team is made up of well seasoned investigators who are ready to help in any way possible”.
Nihar is an award-winning writer, covering inspirational stories around the world. Believe it or not, he stumbled upon writing completely by accident after moving to New York City for the very first time. While in the Big Apple, Nihar noticed that there were thousands of people missing out on the greatness of everyday life, due to the very fast paced lifestyles they lived.
As a result of his observations, he had a big idea to inspire people around the globe by writing a book (which was strange, because he always hated reading books. Why would he ever write one?). With the support of his family and friends though, Nihar ended up debuting his first international book, Win No Matter What, with Balboa Press in June 2013.
Since then, his work has been featured in Washington Square News, U.S. News and World Report, The Huffington Post, and several podcasts. Nihar is now working on a new book, The Corridor of Uncertainty (a heart-warming narrative about the Afghanistan cricket team), which he hopes to release in 2015.
