Pearl, Miss- After deep consideration and consultation with health officials, the City of Pearl has decided to have a Virtual Christmas Celebration Event instead of the traditional Christmas Parade. This decision is in response to the ongoing rapid spread of new COVID-19 cases.

“This was a very difficult, but necessary decision we feel we must make for the health and safety of all our citizens, parade participants and city staff,” said Mayor Jake Windham

The Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony will turn into a Virtual Christmas Celebration on Saturday, Dec. 5 at 6 p.m. in front of City Hall. The event will be broadcast “live” on the Pearl Municipal Broadcasting Network. Additional details about the event will be released as we get closer.
