Fulton’s historic town square, which has been the center of the county's social activity since 1839 is being spruced up for the holiday season. Wreaths are being placed on the lamp posts along the streets and the businesses are all decked out in their Christmas finery. Two upcoming holiday events will enhance the holiday scenery around the square.
The Annual Fulton Christmas Parade
The annual Fulton Christmas Parade will be held this Thursday evening, December 6. This year’s parade theme is “The Lights of Christmas.” The annual festive event will start at 6 p.m. The parade will begin on the campus of Itawamba Community College and will travel east on Wiygul Street, then north on Clifton Street and west on Main Street. The Fulton Christmas parade has been a special event for generations of Itawambians – young and old alike.
Folk Music on the Town Square
On December 21, beginning at 3 p.m. the Ita-mingo Strummers and friends will be playing traditional hill country holiday music on the east side of the town square in Fulton. This group features traditional southern Appalachian instruments including the dulcimer, mandolin and guitar.
