South Mississippi may lack a snowy winter wonderland, but we've got an array of holiday festivities lined up for the weekend.

The snowflakes and sugarplum festival puts on the holiday atmosphere complete with live bands, vendors, food and mini train rides. It's happening in Bay St. Louis at the Historic Depot District. No running around to different stores at this event, 28 arts and crafts vendors will be at your finger tips bringing unique holiday decorations and one of a kind items. Festival goers will love the artificial skating rink outdoor.
