The sky lights up Saturday night

“Oh, say can you see?” Yes you can. Biloxi’s annual Fourth of July fireworks show is set to take place Saturday beginning at 9 p.m.

The city-sponsored front beach show, which is supported by a host of businesses through the organizing Boom Boom Committee, takes place on Independence Day from a barge just south of the Biloxi Yacht Club, near Deer Island.

The 18- to 21-minute show will be set to music being played on FM 105.9 beginning at 9 p.m. The best viewing of the show is from the Biloxi Lighthouse eastward to the Biloxi Bay Bridge.

Fans of the fireworks show will again be able to enjoy the presentation on east beach without the fear of being hit by wayward fireworks not part of the show. A fireworks-free zone will occupy a mile-long stretch between Oak Street and the Biloxi Small Craft Harbor.

Those attending the fireworks show are reminded to social distance and wear a face mask.  Masks are available at the Biloxi Visitors Center which is open daily from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. 

A few things to remember: If you’re planning to attend the fireworks show, follow CDC guidelines to help stop the spread of the coronavirus. Park in parking bays only. Do not park in the center median of U.S. 90. Cross U.S. 90 only at crosswalks. On the drive home, traffic may be heavy and slow moving so be patient. And sign up for B-Alert for traffic and weather advisories.
