Ocean Springs Chamber of Commerce-Main Street-Tourism Bureau wins “Best Special Event” Award this week at the Mississippi Main Street Association’s (MMSA) 26th Annual Awards Luncheon in downtown Jackson on June 18 for its “Snow Day” event.
In early January, the Ocean Springs Chamber of Commerce-Main Street-Tourism Bureau turned a very cold day into a fun outing for children from around the community. On January 8, the weather was just right for the Ocean Springs Chamber to turn the L&N Depot Plaza in downtown into a snow village complete with real snow, Olaf and “Frozen” cake and cupcakes. Children enjoyed a day in the snow making snow angels, snow ball fights and building their own snowmen. For many of these children it was the very first time they have experienced “snow”.
The luncheon celebrated achievements of Mississippi Main Street Communities and was presented MMSA Executive Director Bob Wilson and 2015-2016 Board President Suzanne Smith.
"This year's award winners reflect the commitment of many individuals and groups who champion what Main Street is all about - developing the heart of our communities, our historic downtowns, and enhancing quality of life for everyone," Wilson said.
