Summertime fun at the Fair
Summer is here! While the official start to summer won’t happen until June 20th, 2017, the unofficial start begins this Memorial Day weekend. Memorial Day helps us remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Many people enjoy barbecues and time at the pool. Here at Biloxi Beach Resort Rentals, our condos on the beach are perfect for families looking at getting away for the weekend. Lay by the pool and have some tasty grilled food, or you can enjoy the start of fair season in Mississippi.
Kick off summer when you celebrate the 88th Biloxi Blessing of the Fleet with the rest of the town. This fun event commemorates those who have lost their lives as fishermen and seafood industry workers. As seafood is popular export for the Gulf Coast and this four-day event marks the memorial. Starting off on Thursday with a Memorial of the Mass for Deceased Fishermen and introduction of the Shrimp King and Queen. Saturday includes the daylong festival Fais-Do-Do, or street dance with lots of craft and food vendors, as well as the Mass of the Blessing and coronation.
