CORAL BAY'S THE PLACE TO CELEBRATE LABOR DAY

Aug. 26, 2002 –- When it comes to parades, Coral Bay's Labor Day parade on Sept. 2 will be short on length but long on fun. And the party afterwards has live music, games for kids and adults and good food.
"It's the best on the island," organizer Jane Johannes said.
The parade kicks off at 11 a.m., but don't be surprised if it's more than a tad late getting underway. And it won't last more than about a half hour – if that – as it wends its way from near Pickles Deli on Route 107 to the Guy Benjamin School ball field.
Johannes said so far, she's heard from six or eight groups who want to participate in the parade. She didn't know their names. She said the party, billed as a craft and food fair, starts as soon as the parade ends and will run until 7 p.m.
Persons who'd like to set up at the ball field or participate in the parade asked to leave a message at the Tourism Department in St. John at 776-6450.
