Mongoose Junction will kick off the holiday season at 5:30 p.m., Friday, Nov. 26. Come and enjoy an evening of live music, delicious food, cold drinks and fabulous shopping.  This yearly St. John holiday tradition is hosted by the Mongoose Junction Merchants Association.

Also, the public can win a chance at one of two $500 shopping and dining sprees at Mongoose Junction. For every purchase at any of the shops during the event, patrons will receive one raffle ticket for a chance to win. The more one shops, the more chances to win! The Mongoose Junction Merchants Association will hold the $500 drawings throughout the evening, and a ticket holder does not need to be present to win.

Musical guests will include steel pan from the Love City Pan Dragons from 5:30-7:30 p.m., and the jazz duo Broheem with Love from 7-9 p.m.
