BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Get your autograph pens out because there are some big celebrities in town. From Garth Brooks to Michael Jackson, well sort of. Legends in Concert is the world's greatest live tribute show, and you can see your favorite celebrity or musician impersonator this weekend and next at the IP.

If you're in the mood for a musical, the Gulfport Little Theatre presents Aida. It's a dramatic story of forbidden love between a Princess and a soldier. Will they face death or part forever? You'll have to go to find out.

How about a comedy, Biloxi Little Theatre is brining to stage "You Can't Take it With You." The story of an eccentric family will keep you laughing all night long.

There will be a bonanza of great bands playing at the Coast Coliseum for this year's CPR Fest. Rock out Saturday to the sounds of Buckcherry, Aaron Lewis, Limp Bizkit and more.

Get your game face on for this year's Gulf Coast Down Syndrome Society's Poker Run. Registration begins at 9am Saturday at the Armed Forces Motorcycle Club in Gulfport.

Wanted dead or alive the biggest croaker in all of South Mississippi. This weekend join in the fun and throw your line out for the Croaker Classic. The fun kicks off Saturday and continues on until Sunday. The place to be is the Dock Bar and Grill in Gulfport. We want to hear about your events. If you have something going on make sure to post it on our community calendar.
