Great Deals, Family Fun at Mongoose Junction’s April 6 First Friday Event

Mongoose Junction will celebrate renewal with its April 6 First Friday event, the first to be held since Hurricane Irma made a direct hit on St. John. First Fridays take place on the first Friday of each month from 6 to 9 p.m., and many Mongoose businesses will offer discounts and fun activities throughout the evening.


April’s First Friday celebration serves a dual purpose, as it will mark the very special 40th anniversary of Mongoose Junction.


This lively, family-friendly event will also include a fundraiser for the Love City Pan Dragons, who will be performing from 5 to 7 p.m. in the courtyard at Mongoose’s main entrance and selling t-shirts, bracelets, and bumper stickers to support the non-profit steel band.


Deals and activities at the event will include:


Come out this Friday, April 6, to celebrate the anniversary of Mongoose Junction and how far the island has come in the wake of Hurricane Irma, then stick around for dinner at one of the shopping destination’s excellent restaurants. Mongoose Junction offers premier shopping and dining in a lush tropical setting, and is an easy walk from the Cruz Bay ferry dock.
