Irresistible specials, snacks, beverages, Christmas decorations and music will spread joy across Picayune this week as Picayune Main Street holds the annual Christmas in July from Wednesday through Friday.
With each purchase during the event, customers will be registered twice for a chance to win a Merry Cheer Basket valued at $790. Friday, customers will be registered three times with every purchase.
“The basket is filled with so many amazing things, from a nifty cooler bag customized to Maroon Tide or Blue Devil fans that is perfect to bring to the games. Also, there are many stylish Christmas in July decorations, a large wreath, coloring books for the children and more,” Picayune Main Street Director Reba Beebe said
Sixteen different vendors, from restaurants to boutiques, will hold sales for their merchandise. Beebe said Santa will not be in attendance due to his extended Bahamas vacation.
“This is a beautiful time of the year to get out and support the locally owned businesses and show how great our town is to visitors who are coming in for the Cal Ripken tournament,” Beebe said.
Customers will also have a chance at winning free pizza tickets for Friday’s pizza party with Bahamas Santa, Ms. Claus and Kenny the Elf at Crackin’ Shells Dippin’ Tails. Each participating merchant is giving away a free ticket to a lucky winner Wednesday and Thursday. The drawing for the prizes will be at Crackin’ Shells Dippin’ Tails at 5 p.m. Friday.
Participating merchants include Angel’s Place, April’s of Picayune, Bella Skin, MJP Shoes, Gibson’s House of Antiques, Bonnie Blue Boutique, Glass Porch, Diva Dayzle, Barousse Designs, Dancewear Connection, Samples Power House, Shades of the Past, Memory Lane, Unique to Boutique, Crackin’ Shells Dippin’ Tails and Johnson’s Station.
