GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

The holidays aren't quite over yet - at least not in Gulfport.

Sunday is the last night for the Harbor Lights Festival in Jones Park. The festival will be open until 9 p.m., and tickets are $5 a person.

The event has been open since Nov. 27 and has been dazzling patrons with flashing displays and coordinated music throughout the holidays.

But, just like everyone else and every other event, the festival has had to deal with bad weather during Christmas and New Year's. Officials say that the event had to close down for four days, although they anticipated six.

Despite the closures, officials say more than 40,000 people have come through the park for the festival. Officials say that there will be an assessment of the project to see where improvements can be made.

Mike Lacy will have more on the city's assessment of the first Harbor Lights Festival tonight on WLOX News at 10.
