Ocean Springs ‘Discover Christmas Parade’ set for December 6th
The annual ‘Discover Christmas Parade’ is set for December 6th in Ocean Springs.
The parade also serves as a toy drive. Instead of paying an entrance fee, every float, vehicle, or other unit should bring an unwrapped toy.
Organizers are also encouraging the crowd to bring toys that way they will collect toys while they are parading.
The parade starts at Front Beach and rolls to Ocean Springs Lumber and Supply.
After the parade, the toys are given to local organizations that will distribute them to families in need. Organizer Heather Eason said, “We know that it’s kind of a different year and it might be smaller than it has normally been, but the really important thing is to create the magic of Christmas which is giving. Giving to those families that couldn’t afford it otherwise. So, it’s a really cool event.”
The deadline to register to participate is December 1st. If you’re interested check out the ‘Discover Christmas Parade’s Facebook page or website.
