Come celebrate the season with the City of Mobile this weekend complete with a holiday market, tubas and a snow maze. Head to the City of Mobile events calendar to make sure you don’t miss a minute of the holiday festivities.

Mayor Stimpson said: “Mobile was born to celebrate the holidays and this weekend will not disappoint. The holiday season is an important time to come together as a community. I encourage all of our citizens to take part in the festivities this weekend, and even take it one step further, and reach out to anyone you know who is feeling lost or alone. There truly is something for everyone this year. Be on the lookout for more to come!”
