Snowflakes and Sugarplums fest gave feeling of togetherness

Posted: Updated:
BAY ST. LOUIS, MS (WLOX) -

Christmas came to life in Bay St. Louis during the second annual Snowflakes and Sugarplums festival. We were there as the historic Depot District was transformed into a Christmas village.

The cold weather couldn't stop the festival. Families came out in full winter gear for the holiday event.  

"It feels like Christmas today it's so cold. This is the second year for the sugarplums and we decided to go see what was happening to make it feel like Christmas," said Candee Canady who came with her grandson Finn.  

Food vendors were part of the event offering everything from barbecue to sweet treats. Setting the atmosphere were Christmas decorations and live bands playing holiday music.  

"It's a lot of fun for the kids to play and have fun," said Carson Moran.

"I like the ice skating because it's not very popular down here, but it's really fun to do," said Brooklyn Curran.  

For those not interested in the artificial ice skating another option was the world's largest snowman bounce house. Families said there seems to be a great family event in the Bay for almost every holiday and this one didn't disappoint. 

"It's really fun to help bond and its fun just to walk around and look at everything that they have that you don't typically see every day," said Curran.  

The event wrapped up at 9 p.m. People from all over South Mississippi and Louisiana attended.
