The UVI community is encouraged to support participants in this year’s University entry in the Crucian Christmas Carnival parade scheduled for 10 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 4, 2014. The float will feature a tropical garden – with flowers native to the Virgin Islands – and beach scene. Music will be provided by UVI’s Albert A. Sheen Campus Steel Band Orchestra. Participants will be in four categories: Hibiscus, Sea Urchins, Sea Shells and Bougainvillea.
