BAY ST. LOUIS, MS (WLOX) - With summer knocking on our door, Bay St. Louis has started their annual summer long event.

That's right. It's time for Second Saturday. This Saturday was the kick off of the event in the downtown area.

Hundreds of people came out to Second Saturday to enjoy the great sales, food and music.

Local vendors love this time of the year. They say events like this provide a boost to their beautiful, historic city.

"Anything to get people down here, the city needs all the help we can get, so I'm all for it," said Randy Shubert.

"Since everybody kind of buying in to the fact, and all the shops and restaurants stay open late. You know, the more there is to do, the better it is for all of us," said Jeremy Burke, owner of Bay Books.

The summer long event is hosted on the second Saturday of each month.
