Main Street to host fourth ‘Grilling on the Green’

Dozens of teams are expected to be participating for $3,000 in cash and prizes and the title of best barbecue on the Coast Saturday when Main Street Biloxi hosts its fourth annual Grillin’ on the Green.

The Town Green will host a day of family entertainment — a children’s play area, face painting, and more — from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with the Hibernia Marching Socity’s St. Patrick’s parade rolling by at 2 p.m.

Admission to the event — to either grill or watch — is free, but there’s a $5 fee for children to enter the special play area.

And the grilling competition, according to Main Street Director Kay Miller, has become the Coast’s premier event of the Spring. As many as 5,000 visitors are expected to witness backyard grilling enthusiasts — amateurs and professionals — at work on the Town Green.
Teams interested in entering should call (228) 435-6339, email or visit the Bond-Grant House, 932 Howard Ave. to pick up an application.
