On Dec. 13, the Coral Bay Bizarre Bazaar will return for its second year from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Pickles in Paradise on Route 107. At last year’s event, hundreds of St. John residents and island visitors alike reveled at the surprise hit party of the season. While enjoying non-stop music, dancing, eating, drinking, shopping as well as a surprise visit from Santa Claus, attendees raised over $12,000 through fundraising raffles, contests, auctions and a yard/plant sale to support Coral Bay Community Council (CBCC) activities. This year’s party promises to be even bigger.

 Are you getting ready?

Donated YARD SALE items should be delivered to the CBCC Office by Friday 6pm.  (Do not bring on Saturday – they need to be sorted/priced beforehand.)  All proceeds will go to CBCC.

Donated PLANT SALE Plants should be brought on Saturday and delivered straight to the Plant sale site in the left hand rear corner behind Pickles.  All proceeds will go to CBCC.
