This year’s St. John Festival Children’s Village opened on Friday, June 30 and closed Monday, July 3. Situated on the property of the Virgin Islands National Park Center in Cruz Bay, the village provides an alcohol and drug free zone for St. John children during Festival. The Children’s Village was made possible through the partnership of St. John volunteers, The Rotary Club of St. John and The Freshwater Church.
