OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) - Ocean Springs kicked off festival season Wednesday with a community party. Blue Moon, which is the official sponsor of the Peter Anderson Festival, sponsored the kickoff event at the Ocean Springs Community Center.
The winner's pieces from the Blue Moon art contest were also on display. Some of those pieces will be used by local restaurants leading up to the Peter Anderson Festival and were auctioned off. All proceeds benefit the artists.
The party celebrates Blue Moon and the start of fall festivals.
"We like to call the fall time in Ocean Springs festival season with Cruisin' and Peter Anderson," said Cynthia Sutton, with the Ocean Springs Main Street Association. "Every year, thanks to our partnership with Blue Moon, we do a kickoff event where we unveil some things never seen before for the festival."
The Peter Anderson Festival will be held Nov. 7 and 8.
