HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Thousands of visitors are helping the Hub City celebrate an old-fashioned holiday this weekend.   

It's all part of the 40th annual "Victorian Candlelit Christmas" in historic downtown Hattiesburg.

It features horse-drawn carriage rides, tours of century-old homes, outdoor movies and a holiday market.

Art shows and photos with Santa are also a part of the event, which was first held to celebrate the nation's bicentennial in 1976.  

It continues Sunday night.
