What you need to know to enjoy Biloxi's Ultimate Game-Day Experience

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

Biloxi is getting ready for the Shuckers' home opener at MGM Park, but the party officially kicks off hours earlier in the Howard Avenue section of Vieux Marche. Beginning at Saturday 12:45pm, you can find all kinds of family activities, including batting cages, a radar gun to check pitch velocity, a whiffle ball home run derby contest, and free popcorn and snow cones.

See a full schedule of the game-day activities, including a parade and live music, at http://www.biloxi.ms.us/gameday/

The other big question is, "Where should I park?" The city is advising all fans to park at any of east Biloxi's casinos, then catch the free Coast Transit park-and-ride shuttle service to the downtown Biloxi Transit Center. The free park-and-ride service will run along the Casino Hopper route from 5:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday, and during peak hours, the CTA shuttles will be making stops every 20 minutes.

If you plan to park downtown, you need to be aware of the street closures. Here's a map showing available parking: http://www.biloxi.ms.us/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/GameDayTraffic.pdf

WLOX.com will live stream the opening day ceremony at the ballpark Saturday night beginning at 6:45pm. Watch online or through our free WLOX News app. Just click on the "Live Video" tab in the menu bar.

    We live in a wonderful time. We have the capability of instant communication with almost anyone at any time; all in the palm of our hands. We can stay connected to everyone all the time which is great - most of the time. There are times when we need to put aside our smart phones and do our jobs.

    Mississippi’s giant house party might not have the fanfare of 2016. But, it’s still a must visit event for families across the magnolia state. This year is not a political year in Mississippi. So, the political stumping is not nearly as significant as it can be. Yet, this Wednesday and Thursday, people will gather under the pavilion at Founders Square and listen to a series of speeches from Mississippi’s elected leaders.
