The 41st annual Run Thru History took place in the Vicksburg National Military Park on Saturday, March 7.

The event featured a 10k run, 5k walk and a 1k “Cannonball Run.” More than 600 runners and walkers participated in what has become one of Mississippi’s biggest race events.

Big winners of the day were Peter Kazery and Kerri Frazier in the 10k run.

The race was sponsored by the Junius Ward Johnson YMCA, and proceeds will offset the costs for teens attending the YMCA Christian Values Conference in Black Mountain, N.C. About 90 teenagers attending schools in the Vicksburg-Warren School District will be attending the conference.

Individual and team winners are listed below.

Mississippi Boy Choir’s annual Christmas Concert will be online Friday

Published

(photo from MBC Facebook page)

The Mississippi Boy Choir will present its annual Christmas Concert virtually this year, meaning everyone can enjoy the choir for free.

The concert is scheduled for Friday, Dec. 4, at 7 p.m. and will be broadcast on the choir’s website from the Old Capitol Museum in Jackson, Mississippi.

2020 marks the 26th season for the choir, which stems from a 1,500-year-old tradition of boys singing in the great cathedrals of Western Europe. The organization has two choirs: a training choir that consists of young boys in second grade up whose voices have not changed, and a concert choir with both changed and unchanged voices. The concert choir generally consists of boys from the fifth through the 12th grade.

The Vicksburg branch of the Mississippi Boy Choir meets on Mondays at the Church of the Holy Trinity on South Street.

Friday’s performance is funded by the Mississippi Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts.

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 Christmas events include:

  • Friday, Nov. 27, live music at 5:30 p.m. and City of Vicksburg Tree Lighting at 6 p.m. – Santa will be present
  • Friday, Nov. 27 through Sunday, Dec. 27 – Christmas in the Park- Make plans to see all the Christmas lights and decorations at Washington Street Park
  • Saturday, Nov. 28, All Day – Small Business Saturday
  • Sunday, Nov. 29, 1 to 5 p.m.- Old Fashion Holiday Open House. Shoppers who spend $25 or more will receive a poinsettia from the Vicksburg Main Street Program. Santa will be strolling Washington Street and available for pictures – bring your camera!
  • Saturday, Dec. 5, 8 a.m. Reindeer Run at Catfish Row
  • Saturday, Dec. 5, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Levee Street Marketplace Christmas Open House
  • Sunday, Dec. 6, 3 to 8 p.m., Southern Cultural Heritage Foundation Kids in the Kitchen Christmas

  • Saturday, Dec. 12, 2 to 6 p.m., Second Saturday
  • Sunday, Dec. 13-12:30 p.m. Vicksburg Convention Center’s Holiday Jazz Brunch “Miracle on Swing Street”

Vicksburg’s Main Street organization appreciates the public’s support in the redesign of this year’s celebration and hopes that each and every citizen will visit the festive downtown area this holiday season to support our merchants, restaurants and businesses. The board and staff of Vicksburg Main Street remains committed to growing the economic vitality of our downtown and community.
