The stop in Vicksburg is part of a statewide tour put on by Mississippi State’s athletics department. The Golden Egg Tour started last Saturday in Jackson and will include 11 stops in more than a dozen cities in 10 days. Some season ticketholders in select cities also received surprise home visits from Bully and the Golden Egg.

“We’ve got an MSU Christmas tree set up and some cute little surprises for people to look at. We’re excited,” said Amanda Ross, associate agent with Alfa Insurance’s Stuart Agency.
