Free Flowin’ Fest in Pascagoula

To celebrate the city of Pascagoula and the beauty of the Pascagoula river, the 8th annual Free Flowin’ Fest was held Saturday at Beach Park.

The festival shines a light on the Pascagoula River which is the last and largest free flowing river in the U.S.

The event was full of live music from the Red Clay Strays, the Chitlins, the Tree oh, and Marlow Boys Trio.

Over 20 vendors selling arts, crafts, and jewelry were set up at the festival.

Seven food trucks were also parked serving up meals. Jennifer Evans, marketing director for the festival, tells News 25 how the festival came about. “So, the group of friends just decided that we needed to showcase some things in our city to help from an economic basis, and also just to showcase the city and show the beautiful aspects of it. So, it started as the Pascagoula River Festival to start, but then we started researching about the last and largest free flowing river than we changed the branding.”

Evans says she is hoping that the festival will continue to grow.
