! JUMP UP !
Jump Up can refer to a style of street music performed during Carnival, but to us Crucians it is our 4 times a year party in the streets of Christiansted.
Streets are closed to traffic and the party begins at 6pm.
Stores and restaurants stay open late,vendors line the streets offering food and drink.
And of course, MUSIC!
Calypso steel drum bands along with other styles of music on almost every corner.
Mocko Jumbies and fire dancers perform in the streets as they have for more than 200 years.
A true Caribbean block party not to be missed.
