December with children

My husband and I are planning to bring our grandsons, ages 4 and 6 for a night in December, probably the night of the 8th. We were wondering what to do with them and if there was anything special/Christmas going on.

Thank you.

I'd take them to city park for Celebration in the Oaks. Everything is lit for Christmas and the little ones would probably really enjoy the old carousel.

Great. We're from Hattiesburg and I didn't know about the carousel. Do you know if there are any Christmas programs like Fisney on Ice? I can't find any.

The Roosevelt hotel has absolutely amazing Christmas decorations. They have a Teddy Bear tea. I've never been to that, not sure if it would be worth the money. But it's totally worth just going through the lobby. You can have cocoa in the coffee shop which has a gingerbread village set up as I recall.

The lights are really pretty! We strolled through Friday and I took the kids pictures with the lights and trees for Christmas cards!
