If you just can’t wait for the 4th of July on Tuesday, you can get a head start on the festivities Friday night.
In Cleveland, hit up the Delta Meat Market Happy Hour. They’re kicking off Fourth of July Weekend Delta style, with good food, good music, and a vibrant atmosphere that makes it easy to unwind and celebrate independence and freedom.
Then hit up Ridgeland for the annual Balloon Glow. As the sun goes down the balloons are lit, the live music kicks off, and the food is served. There’s something for the kids, family and friends each year at the Northpark Mall.
If you want to celebrate by the Gulf, then head to Bay St. Louis for the kickoff of the Our Lady of the Gulf Crab Festival. Held every year, this proves to be one of the church’s favorite public events with all the delicious seafood you can eat.
