You can start your New Year’s resolutions after you party down in Natchez. (We won’t tell anybody!)

Laser Show and Snow!

resized christmas downtownWhat’s better than kicking off Christmas a little early than with a Gumbo Cook Off, Lighting of the Tree, a laser light show & REAL SNOW in downtown Natchez?! We haven’t figured it out either!

On Friday, November 28th, we will officially begin Christmas in Natchez. The event will start off with the Annual Gumbo Cook Off at 4:00 p.m. Tasting kits will be $10. There will also be Christmas music playing throughout the streets.  IMG_0036If you’re traveling with the kiddos, don’t worry, we have not forgotten about them. There will be plenty of activities to do before the lighting, such as, bungee jumps, face painting, rock wall climbing and a train ride.

ThIMG_0150is year, we will have REAL SNOW for 45 minutes and a laser light show right before the lighting of the tree. You can even chime in with Christmas caroling around the tree!

Christmas in Natchez will last through New Year’s with events throughout the month of December.
