The 23rd Annual All Island Holiday Party will take place in Mongoose Junction Saturday, December 15 starting at 9:00 pm and ending at 1:00 am. The event is hosted by The Sun Dog Cafe and the Mongoose Merchants Association.
The All Island Holiday Party (aka “The Prom”) has its roots in trying to rebuild the community after Hurricane Marilyn in 1995, and through the years has become a social highlight for many full time St. John residents and a homecoming for those that visit seasonally.
It is an opportunity to dress up, island fancy, and celebrate the holidays in the gracious courtyards of Mongoose Junction, with friends new and old, amid holiday cheer and festive decorations. Music will be performed by Hatch, with original member Ryan Balthrop, with special guests, performing in the center courtyard from 9 pm to 1 am.
Somewhere along the way, the lengthy title: The All Island Holiday Party was shortened to “The Prom.” Therefore, a photo booth will be in place and a Prom King and Queen will be selected by the Prom Committee for a presentation at midnight.
A complimentary hors-d’oeuvres buffet hosted by Sun Dog Cafe will feature Maryland Crab Cakes, Tuna Tartare, Smoked Salmon Cucumber Cups, and an assortment of artisan pizzas. Cash bars abound and a wine bar completes the scene on the first floor of the complex.
The party is for adults only, no children or pets, please.
