St. John Virgin Islands celebrates Carnival

The fourth of July here in the Virgin Islands was filled with celebration of not only Independence day but also the St. John Carnival. Like all celebrations here, the magnitude is island wide and people from all parts of the world partake  in the festivities. Many join their favorite troop and dance in the streets for the best of show award. This years carnival had some really beautiful costumes. My favorite was the Westin resort. Their theme was a salute to the troops. They had all the branches covered…well not really covered if that word applies here. All I can say is that I don’t remember the uniforms looking like that when I was in the service. In any event they got my attention and by the reaction of the crowd they got their attention too. Well done Westin Resort and THANK YOU for the tribute to the troops.  Please enjoy some of my favorite images. LL
