By Michelle Lady - email

SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - Several golf champs are hoping to swing their way into victory at Fallen Oak Golf Course in Saucier. It's time again for the PGA Champions Tour and you're invited to watch Friday through Sunday.

Up for a challenge? Then lace up your shoes and put on your goggles because there is a triathlon this weekend in the Tradition neighborhood. It begins at 8a.m. and if you don't want to partake then come out and cheer the athletes along the route.

Some of the best artists in the state and beyond will be displaying their work at War Memorial Park for Art in the Pass. Besides art there will be live entertainment, an auction and plenty for the children to do. It's Saturday and Sunday from 10a.m. until 5p.m.

The Gulf of Mexico is vital to our way of life in South Mississippi and the department of Marine Resources is celebrating it. There will be plenty of hands on fun. It's in conjunction with Art in the Pass Saturday.

Spring is a great time to get in the garden and also do some cleaning and remodeling. You can learn about the latest trends in your yard and under your roof at the Home and Garden Show. It's at the Coast Coliseum Saturday and Sunday.

Enjoy fine cuisine overlooking the sparkling moonlit water. There will also be a great band and plenty of dancing. It's Soiree on the Bay and it's to benefit Holy Trinity Catholic School. Come out to the Bay Waveland Yacht Club Saturday between 7:30p.m. and midnight.

If you like chocolate or want to spend a romantic evening with your love this year's Chocolate Ball is a must. The front lawns of the Mary C will be transformed into an elegant dinning and dancing setting Saturday, and yes there will be lots of chocolate.

Several member of the Bay St. Louis rotary club who have never taken the stage before will transform into actors for two nights only. They will perform the melodrama "Dark Deeds at Swan's Place or Never Kiss a Tatooed Sailor." It should be pretty funny, the curtain will rise this Saturday and next Sunday.
