You know when sleigh bells are ringing, snow is glistening and lights are shimmering up and down Washington Street in downtown Vicksburg, it must be the Downtown Vicksburg Christmas Parade of Lights. The parade will take place on Dec. 3, at 5 p.m. The theme this year is “Heroes Among Us”.

“This year’s theme allows for plenty of imagination; the definition of “hero” has been seen in a variety of ways throughout the last couple of years. Your hero can be first responders, healthcare workers, teachers, delivery workers, small business owners, or even your favorite caped crusader!” says Kim Hopkins, Executive Director of Vicksburg Main Street Program.

All area clubs, churches, organizations, schools, bands, drill teams, individuals, and businesses are invited to participate in this community event. The deadline to apply is November 21, 2022. Parade application packets can be downloaded from the Main Street website: or contact the Vicksburg Main Street Program, 912 Cherry Street,

601-634-4527, or email

So, whether you are entering a float or making plans for you and your friends and family to attend the parade this year, we hope to see you all on Dec. 3, in downtown Vicksburg!
