MOSS POINT, MS (WLOX) -

Moss Point's holiday cheer is in full swing. Saturday, the city kicked off the festive season with two parades - one by land, and one by water. 

The land parade was first as floats, 4-wheelers, and even horses cruised around Southgate Mall.

"I'm having fun. Got a bunch of candy, enjoying my family and friends and other type of stuff, and it's just a big parade going on," fourth grader Kennidy Bates said.

Once the sun went down, the parade took to the Escatawpa River. More than 20 boats floated past the harbor, decked out in Christmas lights. With the water glowing, and holiday music playing, everyone seemed to be in the holiday spirit.
