At the top of the news on  !!AIR – January 2 Thursday

Happy New Year – Second Day. Back to normal – more or less.  St. Thomas is open again.
Jouvert in Frederiksted was one for the record books, picture perfect morning, lots of bands and thrngs of people –some still going from New Year’s parties, some who got up early for the revelry. UMB Soldier's got the crowd jumping with "Don't Stop Wukkin." Fusion Band's "Hands Up" got the crowd to raise their hands and dance. Norma's Domino Club had a "muddy road" theme. With three ladies handing out cups of colored mud with folks smearing each other with bright splashes of color. Lots of super soakers to wet-down the crowd and even a fire hose to cool things off.

What do you wear to a New Year’s J’ouvert? – Well,  ANYTHING – pajamas, shorts, carnival costumes, beer can costumes, balloons.  One man came dressed in a woman’s wig, a bra, boxer shorts and cowboy boots. Some wore bright colored tights, tops, shorts and leggings. Some wore superhero costumes and others looked like Winnie-the-Pooh. One group wore matching T-Shirts that said “Got Bread” and some wore nearly nothing – all manner of dress. 

The shucked and jived, wukked and danced in the streets and when it all came to a halt… in Frederiksted town…. the people dissipated… the clean-up crews came out and within hours, Frederiksted was back to being a quiet little town. Oh, and no violence in the J’Ouvert parade.  While there was a shooting overnight in the village, J’Ouvert, itself, came off without any violence.

Never underestimate the power of alcohol to make a mess of your day.  A boat full of party revelers were coming back to St. Thomas from Jost Van Dyke’s New Year’s party when they hit the rocks at Water Point on the east end of St. Thomas.  Three passengers were injured and the boat is a mess.  No drinking and driving - a boat.
