On December 12th, the Coral Bay Bizarre Bazaar returns for its third year to Pickles In Paradise on Route 107 just past the Coral Bay Triangle. Hundreds of USVI residents and island visitors alike enjoyed this festive event of the season. Come and join us for non-stop music, dancing, eating, drinking, shopping, and a surprise visit from Santa Claus, all while helping support the Coral Bay Community Council.

The past two years have raised over $12,000 (annually) through fundraising raffles, contests, auctions, and a yard/plant and we hope to raise more in our third year. The CBCC has donated a portion of the last two years funds to the renovation of the Coral Bay Agriculture Center, in cooperation with the American Legion Post.

More entertainment! More shopping! More kids activities! More prizes! More Bizarre! More Bazaar! Each year, the event continues to expand.

Wagapalooza! 2015

A Boy and his Dog

Wagapalooza Saturday MAY 9th, 2015 – 5:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Winston Wells Ball Field in Cruz Bay

On Saturday May 9th, The Animal Care Center of St. John once again will hold its island version of the Westminster Dog Show at the Winston Wells ball field on St. John. This is the 15th year of Wagapalooza! Benefiting the St. John Animal Care Center. www.wagapalooza.com/.

Thanks to originators, owners of Jolly Dog, and Skinny Legs owners Moe Chabuz and the late Doug Sica of Skinny Legs, along with Joe Palminteri, Wagapalooza has become the major fundraising event for the Animal Care Center.  Wagapalooza had always been held at Skinny’s in Coral Bay, but it finally outgrew that venue.  This year marks the eigth time in Cruz Bay and this year will be even bigger and better.  Wagapalooza organizers had some new ideas to combine with the good old standards.  With Waga in the evening we attract more families and more dogs (it is cooler!!!!). There is great food and drink all evening.
