Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College will kick off the Festival of Lights at the Perkinston Campus on Tuesday, December 1, 2020, with the lighting of the campus that evening. This year, the traditional Festival of Lights will be celebrated in a different fashion, with the community invited to drive through campus and view the beautiful Christmas lights and displays along Perkinston Boulevard and the President’s Circle. Additionally, MGCCC is excited to offer Christmas music through a private radio station for our guests to tune in and enjoy during their visit to campus. The lights will be up throughout the holiday season, allowing families to visit when it is convenient or even more than once.
“We are excited to continue offering our traditional holiday experience to the community in a unique and creative way that provides quality entertainment in a safe manner,” said Dr. Ladd Taylor, vice president of the Perkinston Campus. “While we are temporarily forgoing the various rides, food vendors, and other attractions, we have a very special festival planned for the community.”
