With the theme "Echoes through Time" for Carnival 2009, the Virgin Islands Carnival Committee has taken the road one time with its new web site. The colorful portal provides not only up to date information on this year's Carnival activities, but a collection of articles that highlight the pageantry, music, and culture that bring visitors and islanders from far and wide, each year. This year's activities will take place from April 12-May 2, 2009 at various locations throughout the downtown area (Charlotte Amalie, pronounced "SHAR-lot uh-MAH-lee-ya").

According to a recent St. Thomas Source item, One Recession Don't Stop No Show - preparations are well underway for providing the community and the world with another fine extravaganza. Download the Virgin Islands Carnival schedule and bookmark the official V.I. Carnival web site. Here, you will find a brief history of V.I. Carnival, as well as a way of supporting the Virgin Islands Carnival when you book your travel arrangements, VI Carnival Travel.
NOTE: More happy people in town means that there will be more demand for car rentals, spa and massage services, marine activities, chef and catering services, and inter-island ferries. If you will be coming in April, plan accordingly! Please visit our St. Thomas Special Services page to contact our Concierge and Guest Services Manager to book your extras as soon as possible.
