It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Bay St. Louis. It’s the intent of some downtown locals to make sure that each year, the city becomes more and more welcoming and decked out in holiday cheer, encouraging locals and visitors to shop, eat, and stay here as part of their annual traditions. New this year to the downtown festivities will be a lighted Christmas tree, which will make it’s official debut this Saturday, Nov. 24. The fresh 20-foot Frazier Fir holiday tree, complete with over 3000 lights, will be placed in front of the Hancock County Courthouse, located on the first block of Main Street. The official lighting will be at 6 p.m. Saturday night. The Coast Chorale will be on hand leading holiday carols, and the public is encouraged to add to the fun by arriving in their lighted golf carts or bikes. “It just seemed right for our town to have a gorgeous Christmas tree right in the heart of Old Town,” said organizer Nikki Moon, owner of the Bay Town Inn. “With our sparkling snowflakes already gracing our oak trees, we hope that locals and businesses and visitors will join the fun as we strive to make the Bay an annual destination for the holidays.” The tree was sponsored by local realtors, including Coldwell Bankers, John McDonald Realty, O-Dwyer Realty and Raymond Realty. The tree was also sponsored by the Old Town Merchants Association.
