Christmas events around the Coast

Cities around the Coast will be hosting festive holiday events throughout the month of December.

Tomorrow, hop on over to D’Iberville for the city’s annual Christmas parade ‘Rockin’ around the Christmas Tree.’

The parade starts at Warrior Stadium at 5 and Santa arrives at the town green at 5:30. Santa’s Workshop will be open long before that, check out what his elves have been busy working on between noon and 3:30.

Also happening Saturday, the 13th annual Snowflakes and Sugarplums Parade and Festival in Bay St. Louis. The fun rolls at 11 a.m.

There is still time to register if you want to participate in the parade. Registration is open to vehicles, floats, and groups for a fee of $25.

While there, pay Santa a visit so you can share your Christmas Wish List. You can purchase a $5 wristband for your little ones with access to the bounce house, village, face painting, and more.

Sunday you may want to take the family over to Ocean Springs for the third annual Discover Christmas Parade.

Multiple carnival associations came together to make this parade possible, giving us a taste of Mardi Gras in December.

You can expect to see the memorable pillow fighting elves again this year.

Santa will make an appearance, but be warned, the Grinch may be lingering nearby, too.

The Discover Christmas Parade also helps children in need by doubling as a toy drive.

The parade rolls at 2 p.m. Sunday beginning at Front Beach and ending at Ocean Springs Lumber and Company.

December is a busy time for Old Saint Nick, working in his toy shop and checking his list twice.

But he’s making time for a phone call with his youngest and biggest fans.

The City of Biloxi Parks and Recreation Department has made special arrangements with Santa Claus to call all children ten and under on December 9th from 5:30 to 7:30.

If you would like to receive a call from Santa, fill out the form and return it to the Biloxi Parks and Recreation Department Office by December 8th by 4 p.m. You’ll find that form on the city’s Facebook page.
