Gulf Coast Historical and Cultural Exposition

The history of the Gulf Coast is being celebrated today for the first day of the Gulf Coast Historical and Cultural Exposition.

Historical organizations and destinations are gathered at the Biloxi Visitors Center for this event, including Beauvoir, the Mardi Gras Museum, Aviation Museum and more.

Organizers say it is a great way to take a trip back in time and learn about the rich history of our Coast.

The exposition, which ends at 4, includes a full schedule of presentations highlighting the history of Gulf Park College for Women, heritage tourism, and even performances from the Greek, Russian, and Romanian cultures.

This year’s exposition is being dedicated to the memory of local historian Edmond Boudreaux who passed away just a month ago. Biloxi Historical Administrator Bill Raymond said, “Edmond’s passion was the history of the Gulf Coast and especially the French history. So to be able to bring everybody together and to talk about that history, that is something that Edmund would have loved to know that his name is associated with that forever now.”

There is still a chance tomorrow to be a part of the historical fun. The event runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. tomorrow!
