Each year the residents and merchants of Vicksburg work together to make the holidays a community effort.
Nov. 17, from 1 to 5 p.m., that effort comes to Vicksburg’s city center with the Downtown Vicksburg Holiday Open House hosted by the Downtown Vicksburg Main Street Program.
“This is an open house for the merchants, and it’s meant to give people the first scents and sights of the holiday season,” said Kim Hopkins, director of the Downtown Vicksburg Main Street Program. “Hopefully the weather will really make it feel like it, too.”
Merchants will be offering special holiday sales, festive decorations and specials for all. Live music will also be playing along Washington Street.
The Downtown Main Street hopes to help the city bring in Christmas with this event as well as direct more traffic to the downtown area.

“It’s a good time to come down and shop local, have a good time downtown and start your Christmas season,” she said.See a typo? Report it here.
