Celebrating Memorial Day Vicksburg-Style

Celebrating Memorial DayPlease tell us you aren’t thinking there is nothing fun to do in Vicksburg for Memorial Day. In case the thought flew through your head, let us at Blackburn Nissan give you a few suggestions.

Settle down for a relaxing evening with the Vicksburg Symphony Orchestra at the Vicksburg National Military Park, a fitting way to observe the holiday.

If you’re looking for a more family friendly activity, the Lake Fest at Eagle Lake offers a host of entertainment for everyone from games, live music, a flea market, and, of course, food! Proceeds from the event will benefit the Eagle Lake community.

For your shopping pleasure, the Outlets at Vicksburg promise to offer special Memorial Day sales throughout the weekend. To see the sales your favorite store is offering, check out the Outlets’ website before you go.

True to the cookout tradition of Memorial Day, the House of Ribs will be hosting a Grand Opening Memorial Day Festival. While we haven’t tasted their food, the name sure makes it sound like good food and good times await.

With all these events going on around Vicksburg, there’s no need to celebrate the holiday twiddling your thumbs at home. Hop in your Nissan and enjoy the day!

Nissan Newest Sponsor for Champions League Soccer

Nissan Newest Sponsor for Champions League SoccerWhile here in the United States, soccer is definitely not the most popular sport, in the United Kingdom, soccer (or football, as they call it) is king. That is why Nissan decided to become the newest sponsor for the most prestigious soccer club tournament there, the Champions League.

The Champions League is part of the overall European soccer governing body, the UEFA.

This sponsorship is a big step in Nissan’s goal to become the top Asian brand in Europe. Based on last year’s sales, Nissan ranks third, but is only a hair away from number two, Hyundai, and less than 100,000 vehicles away from top-ranking Toyota.

“European growth is important to Nissan, and in UEFA we feel we have found the perfect partner to help us achieve our business goal of becoming the #1 Asian car manufacturer in Europe by 2016,” said Bastien Schupp, vice president, Marketing, Nissan Europe, in a statement.

We think this is a great move for Nissan and will greatly increase its presence in the European market. And, hopefully, by 2016, we can all yell, “Goal!” when Nissan is number one.
