Sea of Stars fundraiser takes place tonight at Jones Park in Gulfport

Tonight, the Mississippi Aquarium will light up the night skies with the Hancock Whitney Sea of Stars fundraiser.

It’s a free community celebration featuring food, music, and one-of-a-kind drone lights and fireworks show that will take place at Jones Park in Gulfport.

The Sea of Stars drone will launch into the darkness above the beautiful Mississippi Sound, creating illuminated three-dimensional shapes and characters such as alligators, dolphins, and turtles.

While festivities will be taking place at Jones Park, a VIP adult-only private event will take place at the Mississippi Aquarium.

VIPs will enjoy upscale cocktails, coastal cuisine, animal encounters, and a premier viewing location for the show. Mississippi Aquarium Communications Director Jeff Clark said, “It’s our major fundraiser of the year. We are a 501c3 and we solely rely on donations, aquarium admissions, and aquarium memberships. So, that’s how we pay for everything. So, if you want to support that, tickets are still available at msaquarium.org online.”

All the activities begin at 6 tonight.
