Every year, the community comes together to kick off the holiday season in Downtown Pascagoula. The night kicks off with the lighting of the tree at the corner of Delmas Avenue and Magnolia Street. For both the young & old at heart, Santa and Mrs. Claus will be in town at "Santa's Village" to hear those early gift wishes. Get some holiday shopping done by shopping with local vendors who line the streets. The night is filled with live performances by local dance and musical performers. It all leads up to a Christmas Parade of Lights featuring multiple lighted floats and marching bands.
