‘Free Flowin’ on the Riverfront’ set for May 8th at Pascagoula Beach Park

Another sign of South Mississippi and the City of Pascagoula getting into the flow of things is that an annual celebration will be getting underway this May.

Although ‘Free Flowin’ on the Riverfront’ is changing venues, it will still be set alongside scenic water, this year at Pascagoula’s Beach Park.

In years past, this annual festival has been held at Lighthouse Park, but event organizers say the beach park venue, just north of the Gulf of Mexico and Highway 90, will be ideal with plenty of room and shade.

As with each year, there will be plenty for the entire family to enjoy, including live entertainment, food, and there will be local artists and craftsmen and craftswomen selling their goods. Main Street Pascagoula Director Rebecca Davis said, “This will provide a great opportunity. It’s a very low-cost vendor fee. The committee actually lowered from years in the past for them to come out and sell their wares. We’re just hoping for a great number of people to come out and support them, too.”

If you’d like to reserve a vending area at the festival just send an email to mainstreetpascagoula.com

‘Free Flowin’ on the Riverfront’ is scheduled for Saturday, May 8th starting at 11 a.m.  A fireworks display will wrap the event that evening.

Event organizers says COVID safety measures will be in place and people are welcome to wear masks if they wish.
