Hattiesburg's annual 'Victorian Christmas' to take place regardless of rain

Walthall Center Walthall Center

The threat of rain this weekend has not altered plans for a major Yuletide celebration in Hattiesburg.

The annual "Victorian Candlelit Christmas" is taking place as scheduled Saturday and Sunday.

The event, which features more than 18,000 luminaries lining the streets of historic downtown Hattiesburg, will be held from 5-9 p.m. each night.

It will also offer horse-drawn carriage rides from the Walthall Center, tours of several historic homes, Christmas caroling at a few area churches and art shows at several downtown shops.

The event began in 1976 as a celebration of America's bicentennial.
