The November issue of The Picayune Magazine comes wrapped around the 2021 Christmas Lights Guide, both filled with the details you need to stay informed and in the spirit this season. 

In the Christmas Lights Guide, you’ll find a map and dates for the biggest lights displays in three counties. Map out your course to fill your holiday weekends with the bright lights and activities of Christmas. And plan your parties around the parades, snow days, and other seasonal entertainment listed in the guide. 

The Picayune Magazine this month salutes veterans in honor of Veterans Day on Nov. 11. Find local ceremonies, learn the holiday’s history, and meet two 99-year-old World War II veterans who will be honored in Meadowlakes.

Plus, it’s almost time for the The Picayune and KBEY 103.9 FM Food Drive. The station and magazine, both owned by Victory Media Marketing, organize the drive each year with KBEY broadcasting live from two sites to collect non-perishable food for Highland Lakes families. Get the details about the Nov. 10 event in The Picayune Magazine.
