HATTIESBURG, Miss. – Take a step back in time during the 38th Annual Victorian Candlelit Christmas, presented by the Hattiesburg Historic Neighborhood Association and Mississippi Power, Saturday, Dec. 13th and Sunday, Dec. 14th. Experience a simpler time as you travel along streets lined with more than 15,000 luminaries and more than 400 homes and businesses decorate their porches and store fronts with garlands of greenery trimmed with bright bows and twinkling lights.

The Annual Victorian Candlelit Christmas is a longtime holiday favorite event that draws hundreds of visitors from throughout the region, featuring the popular horse-drawn carriage rides, holiday tour of historic homes and strolling carolers throughout the district.
