The Vicksburg Main Street Program has decided to hit the bricks and take action by conducting a fundraising effort that will not only help downtown but beautify it as well. Due to Vicksburg Main Street Taxing District funds being lower than anticipated over the past year, the Vicksburg Main Street Program is hosting a fundraiser called "Make Your Mark in Downtown: One Brick at a Time."
