The Bake Sale doors opened with “Quilts, Crafts, Baked Goods and More.” This fundraiser is at the Depot Museum located at 300 N Richardson. The popular Holiday Caboose was open again this year and is a favorite spot to take Christmas photos along with the Model Train Display in the Township Hall. Visitors in downtown Vicksburg took wagon rides through the Historic Village and visited with Santa’s reindeer who were placed next to the Township Hall.
The activities in downtown Vicksburg kicked off with shopping, a Winter Farmers’ Market and Elf Workshops for kids to make a special holiday craft and treats. There was entertainment in a warming tent in Oswalt Park and Historical Society Bake Sale goodies at 101 E. Prairie Street. Free horse drawn wagon rides provided a unique way to tour the Village and visit the Model Train Display. The Christmas Parade stepped off at 6 PM featuring the award-winning Vicksburg High School marching band and lots of Christmas decorated floats. Many area firetrucks were all decked out in their Christmas finery. After the parade children and adults joined in the tree lighting ceremony in Oswalt Park, caroling and visits with Santa. Please see Vicksburg DDA Christmas in the Village for complete details.
There are activities and events for all ages throughout the Village of Vicksburg.
