The Downtown Vicksburg Christmas Parade of Lights will take place on Dec. 3 at 5 p.m., the Vicksburg Main Street Program announced on Friday afternoon.

The theme this year is “Heroes Among Us.”

“This year’s theme allows for plenty of imagination; the definition of ‘hero’ has been seen in a variety of ways throughout the last couple of years. Your hero can be first responders, healthcare workers, teachers, delivery workers, small business owners or even your favorite caped crusader,” said Kim Hopkins, Executive Director of the Vicksburg Main Street Program.
