BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Every year tens of thousands of visitors from all over come to the City of Biloxi for Spring Break weekend. This year, Spring Break weekend will be April 13-15. Though many residents are dreading the guaranteed traffic delays by having so many visitors in the city at once, many coastal businesses are anticipating the business boom. The City of Biloxi said on their website they want everyone to enjoy their visit and have a great time; but, they do want to remind visitors of the city's rules.
