Having fun doesn't have to come at a high cost. There are plenty of things to do in South Mississippi this weekend that are free or don't cost much.

You can buy; sell trade, or just window shop hundreds of displays of new and old guns, ammo, gun parts, books, knives, knife sharpening, coins, camouflage and other related Items at discount prices.

Coast Young Professionals invites you to move your feet to help feed the needy. The annual Walking on Water bridge walk is rain or shine on Saturday and the concept is simple. Go alone or bring a friend and walk the Ocean Springs –Biloxi Bridge with hundreds of others. To join the walk just show up and bring a nonperishable food item.  Last year the CYP collected 841 pounds of nonperishable food items and more than $100. This event brings out hundreds throughout the day so prepare for a crowd. The walk is 3.7 miles round trip. Plenty of cold drinks will be chilling just for you.

Put on your cowboy boots and head over to the Island View Casino for Country night on Fridays. There's always live entertainment during country night.  This Friday the featured country singer is Poplarville's very own Lisa Lee Albritton. Country night starts at 9 p.m. But if you get there early at 8:15 p.m. you can take country dance lessons so when country night actually starts you can look like a pro instead of someone without any rhythm. Admission is free and beer bucket specials will be offered.
