Tree lighting with Santa begins tomorrow in Ocean Springs

Ocean Springs will continue its ‘By Golly Be Jolly’ celebrations tomorrow with their annual Tree Lighting event with Santa.

The grounds of the Mary C. O’Keefe will be transformed into Santa’s village tomorrow with games, music, and refreshments.

Activities such as letter writing to Santa, bag decorating, ornament decorating, and much more will be available as well.

Santa himself will even make an appearance at the event to take pictures with the guests. Visitors are asked to bring their own cameras with them for pictures.

Ocean Springs Chamber Executive Director Cynthia Sutton said, “This is one of my favorite events to be a part of in Ocean Springs. It’s one of those ones that just brings a smile to people’s faces and to families’ faces. To see a kid talking to Santa or to see a kid grab something easy, like a glass of milk, it’s just a good community event that brings the family together that warms my heart.”

The event will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.  The town tree will be lit around 6:30 when Santa arrives.
