Ocean Springs Night Parade Route Information
The Ocean Springs Night Parade will begin at 7:00 pm on Friday, February 9, 2018. Certain streets will be closed from 6:00 pm until the end of the parade. The barricades will be placed Friday morning starting at 8:00 am. Parking on private property will not be allowed. Towing will be a measure of last resort, and the City of Ocean Springs will only do so once all measures of contacting a vehicle’s owner have been exhausted.
The following streets will be closed:
-Porter Avenue (from the Ocean Springs Yacht Club to Washington Ave.)
-Washington Avenue (from Porter Ave. to Government Street)
-Government Street (from Washington Ave. to Holcomb Blvd.)
Southbound traffic on Washington Avenue from US-90 will be re-routed via Desoto Street. Roads will reopen at the discretion of the Ocean Springs Police Department. As always, it is at the discretion of local law enforcement as to whether it is in the interest of the public’s safety to add or remove a barricade.
Please use extreme caution within the area of the Porter Avenue Infrastructure Improvement Project. Anything that is marked with barricades and/or safety fencing must be observed with caution for the public’s safety.
