Christmas In The City. Biloxi Main Street

christmas-in-the-cityDowntown Biloxi will once again don it’s holiday finery and roll out the red carpet for the most beloved family event of the year, Christmas In The City. Biloxi Main Street is your host for this wonderful holiday treat which takes place on Saturday, December 6from 10 a.m until 4 p.m. The Biloxi Downtown Arts District is the place to be for a Christmas experience like no other. You and your loved ones will enjoy one-of-a-kind shopping, round the clock entertainment, and traditional holiday food and drink. Executive Director of Biloxi Main Street, Kay Carter, said that the Arts District is the perfect location. “The event compliments the businesses on Rue Magnolia and Water Street so beautifully and the decorations are so special. Over the years we tried various locations throughout downtown but nothing fits as well as the Arts District,” she said. The Rue Magnolia is transformed into a charming Christmas village that will make you feel like a kid again.
The celebration begins in the evening on Friday, December 5, with the Children’s Parade and the lighting of the Town Green at 6:00 p.m. The best viewing of the parade is on Lameuse Street. There is nothing that sets the tone of the holiday spirit quite like the Biloxi Town Green when it is decorated with thousands of Christmas lights. It takes several weeks to set up the decorations and hang the lights but the result is truly magical. During the entire month of December, guests can stroll through the holiday wonderland and enjoy it’s sparkle and rainbow of colors. At the conclusion of Christmas In The City on Saturday evening, December 6, Christmas on the Water Boat Parade begins at nightfall. This event is unique to the Coast and there is nothing as extraordinary as sitting along the shoreline to watch these beauties gently roll by. The boat owners spare no expense to decorate each craft. Imaginations run wild as they find wonderful ways to deck the halls on their beloved boats. Downtown Biloxi is a showplace of Christmas pageantry throughout December and must not be missed. (more…)

So Bob and I decided to create our own hummingbird festival in South Mississippi,” Rhonda said. (more…)
