Kids Fest as Part of Peter Anderson Fest, Starts Thursday

A children’s fair in downtown Ocean Springs is set to go for the start of the Peter Anderson Festival Thursday.

St. Alphonsus Catholic School is hosting the 3rd Annual Kids Fest in conjunction with the art festival this weekend. The fair gives kids a chance to have fun at a festival otherwise geared towards adults. Tickets for Kids Fest are $15 on Thursday and $25 Friday through Sunday. Proceeds for the fair benefit the school.

Monique Dellenger, organizer of the Kids Fest, says, “It’s because Peter Anderson is mainly for the adults, so if you had kids, you can say, ‘Hey, we can go to the carnival if you go with me to Peter Anderson.’ It’s a family event. It’s all of us together. We’re just a big family down here.”

The Peter Anderson Festival is Ocean Springs’ largest annual event. Over 150,000 people are expected to attend.
