Christmas in the Old Southwest

In towns all along the river, Christmas is celebrated with special tours, light displays, parades and other great fun! The photos here represent three places in the southwest part of Mississippi. The first (right) is from Vicksburg, where the KCS train arrived decked in Christmas clothing at the Old Depot Museum on December 1, just in time for Vicksburg’s Parade of Lights. Next, historic Port Gibson celebrated the season with a Christmas Pilgrimage, where visitors could enjoy the sights and sounds at homes and churches all over town, including this Christmas tree (below) at City Hall. Finally, Dunleith, one of many wonderful tour homes in Natchez, is decorated in the season’s finest.
