It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in the City of Hospitality.

“Tis the season of so many things we love and with that being said, we are gearing up for a busy holiday week in the City of Booneville. The streets of Booneville are filled with the sounds of the Christmas season. We invite you to take a stroll downtown and around the city of Booneville while shopping, dining, and visiting; you will be entertained as your heart is filled with the spirit of the season.

“The city employees have worked extremely hard to make the city so festive with the lights and decorations. Songs of the season fill the air in the downtown as you walk the streets take a moment to enjoy the season,” said Booneville Main Street Association Executive Director Lori Tucker.

“The retail shops are beautifully decorated for the holidays and filled with all your shopping needs. Get your list made and check it twice. Black Friday sales are better when you support local retailers. “Did you know? You make the business owners do a “happy dance” when you support them. If you can’t shop on Black Friday – no worries, join us for Small Business Saturday on Nov. 27,” said Tucker.

This “Let’s Go Shop Small” event is sponsored by American Express each year to encourage Shopping Small in the local communities. “When you Shop Small, you’re not just supporting neighborhood favorites- you’re investing in a community. Whether you’re a local or in town for the holidays, explore the local communities near you – and Shop Small all season long.”

Friday evening wrapped up the judging for Booneville Christmas Queen 2021. The civic club nominees were outstanding and represented so well. Miss Caitlyn Miller was named the Booneville Christmas Queen and Jocelyn Ball was the runner up. All the young ladies will represent their civic clubs on Monday, December 6th during the Booneville Christmas parade. We want to thank all participants and the clubs for continuing this fabulous Booneville holiday tradition.

On Monday, Dec. 6 at 6 p.m., we will gather for the “Whoville in Booneville” 2021 Christmas Parade. Applications are available at www.visitbooneville.com or at the Main Street office 662-416-9278. You MUST register to enter the parade – deadline is December 1st. Line up will start at 5PM on the NEMCC Blvd. Awards will be given to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Places in the Commercial and Non-Profit Divisions. After the parade join us on Main Street for carriage rides, hot cocoa and cookies, and visits with Santa. Who knows the Grinch and Cindy Lou Who might make an appearance on Main Street. The weather forecast is clear, however, we are looking for a few snow flurries. The city of Booneville is the place to be Monday, Dec. 6!

We want everyone to have a blessed Thanksgiving and remember to Shop and Support Local this holiday season!
