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.

The Heisman Trophy was originally known as the DAC trophy and was presented to its first winner, Jay Berwanger, in 1935. The trophy features a statue of a football player strait-arming a tackler and side-stepping. In 1936, following John W. Heisman’s death, the trophy was renamed. Heisman was well-known for being a strong American athlete and an inventive football mogul.

This year the trophy was awarded to Jameis Winston a quarterback from Florida State University. The trophy was awarded on December 14th broadcasted live from the Best Buy Theater in Times Square on ESPN.
