26th Bastille Day Kingfish TournamentHull Bay, St. Thomas
It's time to fish! It's time to party! It's time to celebrate! The Northside Sportfishing Club's Bastille Day Kingfish Tournament - set for Sunday July 13th at Hull Bay Hideaway - is your chance to catch that 'big one' while enjoying the camaraderie of family and friends. This inshore fishing event offers more ways to win and more cash and luxury gift prizes than any other Virgin Islands-based tournament of its kind. In addition to fishing, there's a live band and beach party in the afternoon for everyone to enjoy. Proceeds from the event benefit charitable community organizations. Come one, come all - men, women, boys and girls - anglers of all skill levels are invited to enter, and everyone comes away a winner. Last year the tournament attracted 208 anglers, including 41 junior anglers, aboard 60 boats! Fishing starts at 5:30 a.m. and ends at 12 Noon, sharp, when the beach side party begins at Hull Bay Hideaway, with food, music and fun lasting right up until the time of the Awards Ceremony at 8pm.

Come Home to St. Croix EventSt. Croix
Come Home to St. Croix (July 13-20, 2014) is the Landmark's Society's annual celebration of culture, history and family. This is their fourth year of hosting an eight-day celebration of culture, history and family. It appeals to Crucians living abroad who wish to reconnect with our culture, Crucians residing at home who want to move closer to our culture, others who have found a home on St. Croix and visitors from far and near. It has grown in popularity, as families and other groups plan reunions on St. Croix. By strengthening family ties, teaching traditional values and customs, we can strengthen our community. In 2014, exhibits, lectures and workshops will include: Exhibit: Hoss, Hossman, & Hoss Racing: Their Role in the Social, Cultural and Economic Development of St. Croix. Roundtable Discussion: Chatting the the Horsemen Dem; Dr. Olaf "Bronco " Hendricks, Moderator. Solving the Puzzle of Kinship: Plaskett Family Work Session.
