Coral Bay Bizarre Bazaar to Happen on Saturday, Dec. 14

The 7th Annual Coral Bay Bizarre Bazaar is set for 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 14, at Pickles in Paradise. Shopping, food, a silent auction, live music, a 50/50 raffle and Santa will all be part of the Bizarre Bazaar, all benefiting the Coral Bay Community Council (CBCC), a non-profit organization with a 16-year history of service to the St. John community.

The Bizarre Bazaar is the largest holiday shopping fair in Coral Bay with about 50 island artists and local vendors selling their wares, including the Ital Delroy Anthony, St. John Organics, Leonard’s farm products, Steve Simonson and many more. Find one-of-a-kind gifts, handmade art and local goods for everyone on the holiday shopping list.

Bazaar attendees can also win big this year with a 50/50 raffle — 50 percent of the proceeds going to the Coral Bay Community Council and 50 percent going into the winner’s pocket — and a silent auction with over $19,000 in prizes. Virgin Islands companies and the extended St. John community gave generously to the auction, and the amazing prizes they donated include jewelry, charter boats, restaurant gift certificates and five local villa stays, plus a seven-day stay in Orlando with Disney tickets!

Lauren & Bo are organizing the musical performances throughout the day, generously donated by the many talented people in Coral Bay. And there will be a performance by the Dynamic Dancers.

Caribbean Santa comes to town after noon ready to hear the Christmas wishes of St. John’s children and children at heart. And there’ll be food and beverages provided by the Tap Room, Sam and Jack’s, and Irie Pops; there will be a grill going with hotdogs and hamburgers and some local food vendors.
