If there’s one thing we know how to do in Laurel & Jones County, MS, it’s celebrate the holidays! From pancakes to parades and everything in between, we’re bringing yuletide cheer all season long with these holiday events.
Twinkling Lights & Celebratory Delights
It’s simply not the holidays until the tree is trimmed and drummers are drumming! ‘Tis officially the season when the annual tradition of lighting Christmas trees take place, followed closely by the annual Christmas parades in each city. City of Laurel Christmas Tree Lighting, Ellisville Christmas Tree Lighting, Ellisville Christmas Parade, and Sertoma of Laurel’s Christmas Parade are all wonderful ways to get in holiday spirit! Find the details for each event on our events calendar.
Annual Christmas at Landrum’s
For more than 36 years, Christmas at Landrum’s has given guests the opportunity to step back in time to experience Christmas past. The Candlelight Tours at Landrum’s Homestead & Village are Hallmark Christmas movie-worthy in their charm and full-on Christmas spirit, but guests will also find walking tours, a candlelight tour, demonstrations, kids’ events (including Santa himself, of course), Confederate soldiers reenactments, Southern Strings Dulcimers, and more.
Get details for all of Landrum’s holiday events at Landrums.com.
Laurel Kiwanis Club Pancake Day
Arguably the best day of the year, Pancake Day takes the holiday celebration to a whole new (delicious) level. All-You-Can-Eat pancakes with butter & syrup, sausage, white & chocolate milk, and Coca Cola products are served at two locations in Laurel. Proceeds help fund scholarships for deserving high school seniors at the five high schools in Laurel and Jones County, plus provide multiplication and division flash cards for hundreds of third grades students at local elementary schools.
