Vicksburg Christmas Parade 2019

Vicksburg Main Street has announced that the annual Christmas Parade of Lights scheduled for Dec. 5 has been canceled.

Applications to participate in the parade, themed “Frozen in Time,” were due today.

Instead of the parade, Vicksburg Main Street is “reimagining” the event, substituting several smaller events to celebrate Christmas in Vicksburg.

  1. “This is an unusual year and we certainly want everyone to have a safe holiday,” said Board President Christi Kilroy. ” These well-thought-out changes were made to protect the people who visit downtown. The board and staff have done everything they can to keep the downtown
    experience festive and fun for the holidays.”

Vicksburg father and daughter finish St. Jude marathon together

Vicksburg natives Anna Kate Doiron and her father, Phillip Doiron, finished the virtual St. Jude race together Saturday, Nov. 14, making them two of the first participants of the first virtual marathon hosted by the Memphis children’s hospital.

Both Anna Kate and Phillip began training in June during the height of the pandemic. They met on some weekends in places like Lake Bruin, Louisiana, to train in preparation for what would be Anna Kate’s first marathon.

They traveled to Oxford, Mississippi, last weekend where they had plenty of supporters cheering them on.  Anna Kate and Phillip ran distance of 26 miles in 4 hours and 58 minutes.

During the race, Anna Kate and Phillip made it to Taylor, Mississippi, where some of Anna Kate’s closest friends held signs and cheered them on. Phillips’s wife, Kara, was waiting at the finish line to congratulate her daughter and husband.

Anna Kate posted her excitement on her Instagram page where she shared a photo with her father after completing the marathon.

Phillip, Executive Director and CEO of the Vicksburg YMCA, was thrilled to be able to share his love of fitness with his daughter.

“What started out as a fitness goal turned into some of the best memories that I have had in a long time with her,” Phillip said.

Anna Kate, who was the 2017 valedictorian of St. Aloysius High School, is now a senior at Ole Miss majoring in integrated marketing communications. After the race, the Doiron family stayed in Oxford and continued celebrating as the Ole Miss Rebels defeated South Carolina 59-42.

The race, an annual fundraising event, began in 1977 as the Memphis Express Marathon, and became St. Jude Memphis Marathon in 2002. Since then, it has raised more than $60 million to support the hospital and allow countless children to receive free health care.

St. Jude marathon organizers knew they could not cancel the hospital’s largest fundraiser due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, they reinvented the way racing is done. The 19th annual St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend transitioned to an interactive virtual experience taking place over four-months, beginning in August and culminating with a virtual race day Saturday, Dec. 5.

VIDEO – Stormy Daniels investigates the paranormal in Vicksburg

Stormy Daniels is at the McNutt House in Vicksburg this weekend.

She is in town to do a paranormal investigation at the house with local ghost hunter David Childers, Ashley Storm and others. The event, which takes place Saturday evening, is a memorial fundraiser for Childers’ brother, Bradley Sandford, who died in September at the age of 36.

Tickets are sold out for the event.

Daniels, a former adult film star, rose to national attention because of her accusations that President Donald Trump paid her $130,000 to keep their 2006 affair quiet a month before the 2016 election. Although Trump’s then attorney Michael Cohen initially denied the payment, he eventually admitted that he had paid Daniels. Cohen pleaded guilty to campaign finance charges in relation to the case. For that accusation and others, Cohen was convicted and sentenced to federal prison. Trump has denied that he instructed Cohen to pay Daniels.
