Volunteers beautify Ocean Springs ahead of Cruisin’ the Coast

Thousands of visitors will be cruisin’ through the City of Ocean Springs soon which is why volunteers with Mississippi Power and the Ocean Springs Main Street volunteer team came together to beautify the city today.

Cruisin’ the Coast kicks off the start of festival season for the city with over 300,000 people expected to visit the City of Discovery between now and the new year.

Volunteers laid sod, cut trees, raked leaves, and did some decorating with pumpkins and fall displays around town. OS Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Cynthia Sutton said, “We love our beautification efforts. For us, it really does have a big economic impact. Of course, if you beautify your area, your downtown, that’s what we are doing today, our downtown areas by plants, green space, that creates a wonderful sense of place and quality of life which has proven to actually have an impact to bring more folks.”

Tonight, the City of Ocean Springs will host Friday at the Fort from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Guests will enjoy music from the Royal Horses tonight.
