Merry Meridian Events Set

Preparations have already been made for Merry Meridian, with numerous Christmas-related events that will take place during November and December.

The Meridian Downtown Association announced its plans for Merry Meridian.

The activities will include the Moscow Ballet's performance of The Great Russian Nutcracker at the Temple Theatre Nov. 23 at 7 p.m., and Breakfast with Santa at Meridian Little Theatre Nov. 26. All events are designed to get this community in the Christmas spirit.

"This year we have the Merry Meridian boutique market in the MSU Riley Center that's going to feature 36 of our region's greatest boutiques," said Michele Pearson, chairman of Merry Meridian. "And we also have the Merry Meridian Craft Market, that's going to be held outside in Dumont Plaza."

Both of those events are Saturday, Dec. 3. The annual Meridian Christmas Parade will be held that evening as well.

Merry Meridian events will also feature the 43rd Annual Trees of Christmas celebration at Merrehope and the F.W. Williams house.

This year's theme is "A Touch of the Brush".

Twenty-two trees will be decorated in the two homes, featuring different artists and artistic movements.

Funds raised during the event go to preservation of the two houses.

"Trees of Christmas is a renowned event in Meridian and Lauderdale County, and we invite you to paint your season merry this year, with the touch of a brush," said Jones.

Trees of Christmas is Nov. 18-Dec. 31, Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. -5 p.m.
