LABOR DAY MEANS TRADITIONAL FUN IN CORAL BAY

Aug. 26, 2002 – When it comes to parades, Coral Bay's annual Labor Day parade is typically short in length but long on fun. And the party afterwards has live music, games for kids and adults, and plenty of food. "It's the best on the island," organizer Jane Johannes said.
This year's parade is to kick off Monday at 11 a.m., but don't be surprised if it's late getting under way. It probably won't last more than half hour as participants wend their way from near Pickles Deli on Route 107 to the Guy Benjamin School ballfield.
So far, Johannes said, she has heard from six or eight groups that want to participate in the parade. She said the party, billed as a crafts and food fair, will start as soon as the parade ends and go until 7 p.m.
Anyone wanting to participate in the parade or set up a booth at the ballfield is asked to leave a message at the Tourism Department office on St. John, at 776-6450.
