Every year in the month of February, America, United Kingdom, and Canada, celebrate the contributions of Blacks to their respective histories. For America, we’ve been celebrating Black History Month since 1976, as a result of the activism of Carter G. Woodson, Jesse Moreland and others. February was chosen as an acknowledgment of the birthdays of Abraham Lincoln and Fredrick Douglas. Throughout the remainder of the month we will share some little known facts about black history. Today, we decided to share a list of inventions by black inventors:
Martin Luther King, Jr 1929-1968
Happy Martin Luther King Jr Day 2020. As we celebrate this great man and his legacy let us remember that we are equally responsible for any injustice that exists in our community. Silence is no excuse. Also let us continue to strive for equality and justice for all. The idealism of his legacy is still as important today as it was during his life. Have a wonderful MLK Day.
We are the only car ferry company in the US Virgin Islands with multiple operational vessels currently in its fleet, allowing us to truly be reliable due to our ability to substitute another vessel if something unexpected occurs. Book online with us today and rest easy knowing that we will get you there.
Love City Car Ferries, Inc: Always a Leader

Love City Car Ferries, Inc. has always been a leader and trend setter in the VI car ferry industry.

November 1st is Liberty Day also known as Bull and Bread Day in honor of the late and great Virgin Islander, David Hamilton Jackson.
Mr. Jackson fought for our rights on many fronts. He was a civil rights activist, labor leader, judge, newspaper editor and so much more. Traveling as far as Denmark as a tireless advocate for local rights while we were under the Danish flag, he organized the territory’s first free newspaper and its first labor union. His efforts for equality for his people did not stop when we were transferred to American rule; he also lobbied for US citizenship.
One has to wonder what he would do if he was alive today. Nevertheless we continue to pay him homage by remembering his legacy and striving to emulate his love for his home and its people.

Friday, October 25, 2019 is Hurricane Thanksgiving Day in the United States Virgin Islands. It is our day to say thanks for being spared the ravages of hurricanes during the past hurricane season.

In celebration, Love City Car Ferries, Inc. will be giving out free pizza, snacks, and t-shirts on Hurricane Thanksgiving Day between the hours of 10 AM and 4:00 PM, on board the M/V Grand Vic.

'Known as a counter celebration to the infamous Columbus Day, Indigenous Peoples’ Day is now celebrated in many parts of the Americas. Many now recognize the fact that Christopher Columbus murdered and enslaved the people he found in this hemisphere of the world.
As West Indians and Virgin Islanders, many of us have Indigenous heritage and ancestry. As a result, we celebrate today October 14, 2019 as Indigenous Peoples' Day and we commemorate the contributions and sacrifices of the Caribs, Arawaks, Taino, Ciboney and all of the original people of our beloved Virgin Islands and their descendants.
