Limited tickets still available for O’ Christmas Tree tour

Published 9:59 am Thursday, December 7, 2023

A limited number of tickets still remain for the O’ Christmas Tree tour of homes this weekend.

The inaugural tour is sponsored by Vicksburg Main Street and the Vicksburg Heritage Guild and serves as a fundraiser for the Vicksburg Main Street Façade Program.

Initiated by Joyce Clingan and Harley Caldwell, restaurant and bed and breakfast owners, the women thought the idea to have homeowners open their doors, some of whom will be inviting the public in for first time, would be a great way to not only raise money for the Vicksburg Main Street Façade Program. It would also be a great way to promote Vicksburg and entice visitors to the city where the first Christmas tree was erected in Mississippi and to stay for a visit.
