Mongoose Junction to Kick Off Holiday Season with Evening in the Courtyard

St. John’s premiere shopping and dining venue, Mongoose Junction, will kick off the holiday season Nov. 23 with their annual Evening in the Courtyard event from 6 to 9 p.m. Locals and visitors alike are welcome to take advantage of specials, sales, and a raffle with prizes of a $500 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 this year. 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.
