Stone County throws a Christmas party

STONE COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - The Christmas lunch menu in Stone County had the traditional items you'd expect. Turkey, ham, dressing, yams and more were all served inside the fairgrounds.

This annual Christmas party brings together families from Wiggins and the surrounding communities. They enjoy a tasty feast, and celebrate this magical time of year. Several small businesses and restaurants donated the food. Volunteers cooked and served the feast.

Originally, the Stone County Christmas party was set up to feed the less fortunate. Over time, it became a countywide celebration for everyone. Besides enjoying food and fellowship, participants had a chance to buy raffle tickets and win a grill. Those who couldn't make it to the fairgrounds had a Christmas meal delivered to their homes.
