‘By Golly, Be Jolly’ campaign returns to the City of Ocean Springs
Ocean Springs and its local businesses are getting ready for the Christmas season with its ‘By Golly, Be Jolly’ campaign.
Lights will be up, events will be hosted, and Santa and Elves might even be spotted. The first of the campaign’s many events will be Small Business Saturday which will be held on November 27th from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
About 30 participating businesses downtown, uptown, and all-around town will be offering deals and discounts during the spree.
The annual tree lighting with Santa will be held on December 2nd and the Ocean Springs Holiday Open House will be held on December 3rd. Ocean Springs Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Cynthia Sutton said, “In Ocean Springs, our small business is our business, and small businesses have to have ways to sustain and generate revenue, and by doing these holiday promotions like this–this is one of those ways to help bring locals and travelers into town to shop with them and help them sustain until the next event.”
If a shopper spends $200 at the local businesses and shows their recipients to the team at the Ocean Springs Visitor Center during the Holiday Open House, they will be entered to win prizes to shop some more in Ocean Springs this season.
