PASCAGOULA, Miss. – In light of the health alert put out Wednesday by the Mississippi State Department of Health urging residents to avoid all social gatherings, the Downtown for the Holidays event scheduled for Friday night in Downtown Pascagoula has been canceled.
“The Downtown for the Holidays committee, Main Street Pascagoula, and Pascagoula city leaders have discussed this at length and it’s a decision no one wanted to make. Today the Mississippi State Department of Health put out a health alert urging residents to avoid all public gatherings. We cannot in good conscience host an event that attracts hundreds of people. There is nothing more important to us than this community and keeping everyone safe is our number one priority,” said Rebecca Davis, Main Street Pascagoula Executive Director.
