    City of Ocean Springs will host our annual Fireworks Show, in observance of Independence Day, on July 3, 2017. The anticipated start time is 8:45 p.m. Please plan to arrive and get settled in your viewing spot early due to increased traffic in the area. Front Beach and East Beach are popular viewing areas.

    ·      Barricades will be in place for traffic and parking control.

    ·      Front Beach Drive will be turned into one-way starting at noon.

    ·      Front Beach Drive will be blocked to vehicle traffic once parking is full.

    ·      At 10:00 p.m., parking will no longer be allowed on Front Beach Drive. Spectators are welcome to stay, but their vehicles must be moved.

    East Beach

    ·      Parking will be allowed next to the sea wall on East Beach, but parking will NOT be allowed on the north side.
