It’s the most legendary New Year’s Eve party in the Caribbean, and it’s back on for Dec. 31.

The British Virgin Islands’ world-famous Foxy’s Old Year’s Night party is going ahead as planned this year, as the destination continues its rapid recovery from Hurricanes Irma and Maria, the British Virgin Islands Tourist Board announced this week.

Last year’s party.

This year’s event, hosted at Foxy’s Tamarind Bar on the island of Jost Van Dyke, will have the theme “Fall of the Roman Empire.”

Yes, that means a Toga Party in the heart of the BVI, taking what’s already one of the region’s liveliest parties to another level.

The musical guest has not yet been announced, but recent years have seen music superstars like Bunny Wailer take the stage.
