Ocean Springs Preps for St. Patrick’s Day Festivities

The Ocean Springs Chamber of Commerce is making final preparations for Tuesday’s St. Patrick’s Day festivities.

There will be a citywide celebration from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. at night. Most businesses in the area will participate with everything from green dot sale specials to serving green coffee. The chamber says this is one of their most popular events and they’re expecting thousands of people to make their way through downtown.

Cynthia Dobbs Sutton, Public Relations Specialist for the Ocean Springs Chamber of Commerce, says, “We say uptown, downtown, all around town. We want everybody in town to participate, from our shops to our galleries to our restaurants. We’ll have everything from our shops, to our galleries, to our restaurants. We’ll have everything starting at 10 a.m. until 9 p.m.”

In the evening, the city will be shutting down Government Street so people enjoying the event can walk freely through downtown.
