Coast beach businesses boom during Memorial Day weekend

SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -

It has been a busy holiday weekend here on the coast. Memorial Day weekend is a very popular time to travel. Here in South Mississippi, beach businesses really benefit from the increased tourism traffic.

Biloxi Beach Jet Ski Rentals has been slammed with business since Friday. The owner says clear, sunny skies have been a big help.

"It helps us out a lot, you know. During the week we are not as busy as I would like to be, but weekend like this definitely make up for it," said Alston Evans, of Biloxi Beach Jet Ski Rentals.

On Saturday, the rental company sold out of chairs and umbrellas. Employees are expecting business to be the same way for the rest of the weekend. Alston said it is weekends like this that keep the business going.
