The city of Natchez was decorated a little early this year, thanks to the filming of the Hallmark Christmas movie, Every Time A Bell Rings.
Now, those decorations are earning the city even further recognition.
Fox News released their list of the 10 best Christmas towns in America, and you guessed it – Natchez made the cut.
“Get more than your fair share of season’s greetings from picturesque Natchez along the Mississippi River, perhaps best known for its antebellum mansions. The fun kicks off on Thanksgiving weekend with the annual Christmas in Natchez tree lighting event on Main Street with pyrotechnics set to music, cameos from the North Pole’s famed Mr. Claus, and many tantalizing food vendors on offer. Hallmark fans may enjoy Visit Natchez’s self-guided tour brochure of the filming sights of “Every Time a Bell Rings,” a Christmas movie filmed in Natchez that premiered on Nov. 18. Catch some shut-eye between festive events at Sunnyside, Bed & Breakfast, home of the Do You See What I See? Christmas tours and over 30 decorated trees or The Towers Mansion, home of the splendid Jeweled Christmas Tours, touted as one of the top 10 most unusual Christmas displays by USA Today,” Perri Ormont Blumberg of Fox News wrote.
