July 4 is on a Sunday this year, providing a three-day weekend — or more for those on an extended vacation — to celebrate in South Mississippi.
The Coast has lots to celebrate this year, as life returns to normal and events that were canceled last year because of the coronavirus are back on the schedule.
The Fishing Rodeo in Gulfport returns with rides and other family fun and Crab Fest, with its crab-stuffed potatoes and other tasty seafood, is back after an abbreviated event in 2020.
Here’s where to see the fireworks and experience the fun in South Mississippi:
