Spring breakers enjoy the coast

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

It was a busy day on the beaches of Biloxi Saturday, as people came out to enjoy the sun on the second day of Mississippi Gulf Coast Spring Break. Many were back on the Gulf Coast for another week of spring break fun.

"I am an avid spring breaker! It's just the environment, you know. It's live. Everybody's out here having fun, no trouble. It's all good," one visitor said.

"It's fun. It's a lot of people that you've never seen. Everybody's interacting," Aliyah Bell said. 

Spring breakers say the streets may not have been as full as last weekend, but they still enjoyed their time.

"Last weekend was okay. It was a lot thicker than this, it had a lot more people. But I don't think a lot of people knew about it this weekend. That's why it's not a lot of people, but it's okay. I mean, no difference," Myisha Bryant said.

Even last week's spring break promoter, Percy Robinson, made an appearance to make sure the good times continued.

"We're just here supporting the next group, you know. Their black spring break was this week, we had ours last week and we're just here supporting these guys," Robinson said.

There were even spring breakers that came to South Mississippi all the way from Jamaica. They say they come to the Mississippi Gulf Coast to show their support, and enjoy the beautiful weather and entertainment.

"It's all about the party for me, you know. Every year. It never stops. I wish they would let us stay a little bit later."

The fun has to end at some time, but one spring breaker makes sure to leave one final message.

"I love Mississippi, and I love all this partying out there so come on out!"

Major Jim Adamo says there were no major accidents or arrests made both weekends of the spring break fun, and would like to thank everyone for their cooperation.
