Mongoose Junction, St. John’s premiere shopping and dining venue, will kick off the holiday season from 6-9 p.m., Friday, Nov. 23, with its annual ‘Evening in the Courtyard.’ Locals and visitors are welcome to take advantage of specials, sales and a raffle with three prizes: a $500 shopping spree and two $250 shopping sprees. Each purchase at a Mongoose shop or restaurant earns a raffle ticket, so the more you shop, the more chances there are to win.
There will be music and live entertainment at the Cruz Bay shopping destination, which is celebrating its 40th birthday. The winner of the Glen Speer Visionary Award, which recognizes a member of the St. John community for their contribution to the aesthetic visual appeal or quality of life on St. John, will be announced at the event.
