SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -

Fall is in full swing, and there are plenty of events going on this weekend to help you get in the autumn spirit.

More than 27,000 people showed up for last year's event, and organizers are hoping for an even bigger turn out this year. And with a haunted house, 20 bands and a 5k race on the line-up, who could blame them? The open air festival kicks off tonight and lasts through Sunday. Admission to the art and food booths is free, and you can catch all the concerts for just $6 a day. Learn more about Bay Bridgefest.

This weekend they're hosting a Holiday Job Fair. Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., stores will be hiring for seasonal and part-time employees. Booths will be set up in the food court for those interested in applying.

If you're looking to get some exercise in this weekend, head on over to the Harrison County Fairgrounds for the Color Vibe 5k. Racers, be warned, you may want to bring a change of clothes. Participants run through various "color zones" during the race, so by the time you cross the finish line, you'll be colored from head to toe. The race kicks off at 9 Saturday morning. A registration fee is required and space is limited, so sign up today if you plan to get in on the fun. Register here.
