The canopy lights, as well as other lights around The Oxford, Mississippi Square, will be lit Tuesday, November 8 at 6 pm. In anticipation of the biggest home football weekend of the season, Mayor Robyn Tannehill and Board of Aldermen arranged for the lights to be turned on a little earlier this year.
Ole Miss Baseball Head Coach Mike Bianco will be in charge of “flipping the switch” to light the Square and the City of Oxford water tower. The “Voice of the Rebels,” David Kellum will be emceeing the event with local musicians playing holiday tunes prior to the lighting. Caffecitos Coffee will be on-site with their signature hot chocolate and apple cider. Additionally, the CWS baseball trophy will be on-hand for photo opportunities from 4:30–6:30 pm.
