Mississippi Spring Break Weekend
The Gulf Coast was flooded with visitors this weekend as they celebrated their spring break in South Mississippi.
People from all over the country fled to the beach to get some sun and enjoy the Gulf Coast during Biloxi Black Beach Weekend. The Coliseum hosted some big name entertainment with concerts featuring performances from Yo Gotti, Meek Mill and more. Other events included a truck show and twerk fest.
One out of towner tells News 25 he’s excited to be on the Gulf Coast for the first time. Spring Break participant Beau Fitte said, “We’re doing good. I have my friends and family out here. We’re out here boiling turkey necks and just enjoying the day.”
A majority of the hotels on the Gulf Coast were at one hundred percent capacity. Biloxi police estimate 60,000 visitors were in town.
