New community space coming to Howard Avenue in Biloxi
If you happen to pass by the corner of G.E. Ohr Street and Howard Avenue in Biloxi you may notice some art pieces and construction going on.
This is a project in the works for the community on behalf of the District on Howard Avenue. This space will be used for food trucks, lunch time crowds, and community events in the future such as movie nights and craft fairs.
It gives the city another cool spot to attract more people to check out local businesses in Downtown Biloxi. The District on Howard Director of Marketing Bobby Gillon said, “It is bringing the history of this beautiful downtown city back to life. There’s so much history and passion from the community for this area. And, people are starting to open businesses and spend more time down here.”
The space should be finished just in time for the Downtown Biloxi Cruisin’ the Coast Block Party next week.
