Visiting Southern Mississippi

Southern and Coastal Mississippi’s long summer days will soon give way to autumn hues, and with it, comes a whole slew of excellent events, outdoor thrills, cities eager to accommodate your stay, and road trip options for all. Plan your next visit to the MS Gulf and check out premier cities like Biloxi to Hattiesburg, and McComb to Gulfport.

When your visit to Southern MS has you in Biloxi, you’ll be in for an outdoor recreational treat. On August 5th through 7th, be sure to take part in the 22nd Annual Carl Legett Memorial Fishing Tournament. Head for the Point Cadet Marina and experience this premier fishing event. On Friday, along with the fishing, you’ll see a live performance from Gary Jeno and the Crawlers, then on Saturday, it’s the Annual Kids Fishing Rodeo – you’ll have to see it for yourself.

Experience the premier motorcycle and beach event in Biloxi during your late summer visit. From September 2nd to 5th, head for MGM Park for the Labor Day Weekend celebration Bike the Beach. This all-weekend party is ideal for motorcycle riders and fans of the motorcycle lifestyle. Check out the American Star Sound Stage for live performances from Derek Norsworthy, and Adam Doleac on Saturday night, and don’t miss the Ms. Bike the Beach pageant.

Be sure to take the whole family out for a fun-filled day at the 2016 Harrison County Fair. Held from September 7th to the 11th at the Harrison County Fairgrounds in Gulfport, this fair features free admission, a wealth of rides and games, and impressive art exhibits and 4-H livestock shows.

Late summer and the fall in southern Mississippi mean it’s college football season. Head for Hattiesburg and visit M.M. Roberts Stadium, home of the University of Southern Mississippi football team.

Make the short drive in from nearby Ellisville or Laurel, and catch a Southern Miss Eagles game this fall. On September 17th, the Troy University Trojans visit Hattiesburg. Later on October 29th, start your Halloween celebrations early when the Marshall University Thundering Herd are in town – it’s also home coming!
