Stacey Mahoney, who is the executive director of the Southern Cultural Heritage Foundation, said, “The Holly Days Arts and Crafts Show has become a tradition in Vicksburg.”

“It has become a day where shoppers can come and browse and buy from quality vendors who showcase their arts and crafts in one room,” Mahoney said.

Admission to the Holly Days Arts and Crafts Show is $2, and this year Billy’s Italian Restaurant will be on site selling lunches.

In addition to the craft show, the annual event will also include performances by local talent, Mahoney said.

The Riverpointe Dance students will kick of the live entertainment and will perform from 9 to 9:45 a.m. Denise Ragsdale’s music students will follow from 10 to 10:45 a.m. and Jeanne Evans’ music students will perform from 11 to 11:45 a.m.

The Debra Franco Preparatory School of Dance students will take the stage at noon.
