The spirit of the Christmas tradition came back to town.

The Philipsburg Jubilee Library presented its Christmas market 2019; a market full of entertainment and a wide variety of flavors and cultures.

Vendors came out to sell their traditional foods and drinks. There were beautiful decorated booths with: samosa, pastry, Creole food, Dominican food, hot dogs, coconut water, fresh juices, guava berry, and ponche crema.

Of course it also included a bouncing castle for the little ones and plants, gift baskets and Christmas cards to take home or to give away.

Life music animated the market with the Fire Band, the Shabba Djembre Band, and the Destiny Band to name a few. The three troubadours Carlson Velasquez, Jan Boujon, and Raymond Jessurun performed the traditional Christmas carol ‘Feliz Navidad’ and other traditional songs. DJ TariQ filled up the rest of the party. Children came out to show their traditional dances. A youth drum band performed in an artistic manner.

Young and old, locals and tourists came out to enjoy the event. It proved again that Christmas is the happiest time of the year. The Philipsburg Jubilee Library wishes all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
