What a day for a walk, a christening, and a cleanup

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

They're turning back the hands of time at Beauvoir.  They're christening a new warship at Ingalls.  They're cleaning up south Mississippi beaches.  And they're walking for all sorts of causes across the coast.

What a Saturday in South Mississippi.  And the weather is certainly perfect for today's outdoor activities.

The Fall Muster is today and tomorrow at Beauvoir.  The re-enactment of confederate and union soldier staging a battle on the grounds begins at 2:00.

Ingalls will christen the LHA America.  The wife of the former Joint Chiefs of Staff is the ship's sponsor.

The Coastal Cleanup is this morning.  Hundreds of people will grab garbage bags, and spruce up our shoreline.

In Jackson County, Gautier is hosting its 22nd annual Mullet Festival.

And there are cancer walks in several coast cities.

Look for coverage from many of these Saturday events on WLOX News and on WLOX.com.
