This Thursday night, the City of Ocean Springs is planning for a magical kick-off to the Christmas season.
Their annual ‘Tree Lighting with Santa’ event is expected to be their most jolly yet with games and activities and even appearances from Elsa and Santa Claus.
For the first time ever, you can expect to see snow to go along with the tree lighting! Cynthia Dobbs Sutton said, “Christmas time is a family oriented time of year and here on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, it’s typically warmer than most other places. You always think of snow, a winter wonderland during this time of year. We’ve actually heard from a lot of kids that they have never seen snow. So, hopefully this will be a fun way for them to feel like they get to see some snow.”
You can expect Santa to arrive around 6:30 p.m. with the Christmas tree lighting happening shortly after.
