Dive deep into the history of Coastal Mississippi by taking a stroll through any one of our local cemeteries, including the Old Biloxi Cemetery, the Griffin Cemetery, Cedar Rest Cemetery, and the Krebs Cemetery. Each location is unique in its own way, with ornate headstones and tombs. Keep an eye out, because you might even see some famous names buried here. For full details, click here.

Slaughter house or autopsy room? Take your pick at the largest haunted house on the coast, called Terror on the Coast. With props from academy award-winning TV and movie productions, there will be no shortage of thrills. This event takes place every Friday & Saturday night from September 17th through October 30th.

Hard Rock Casino
The Hard Rock Casino in Biloxi is getting in the Halloween spirit too. Celebrations include a free screening of "cult classic” The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and live performance by funk-rock band Here Come the Mummies.
Create something you can enjoy for Halloweens to come with your very own blown glass pumpkin. The Pascagoula River Audubon Center is teaming up with Swamp Girl Glass Blowing to provide visitors with the opportunity to learn from a professional glass working team as you create your pumpkin.
Halloween Celebrations for the Kids
We didn't forget about the kids in this one. There are a number of family-friendly festivals and pumpkin patches taking places as well.
You can expect to find food, games, arts & crafts, and more fun at any of these three festivals on the coast on this year: Boo on the Rue in Downtown Biloxi, Halloween Fun Festival at Lynn Meadows Discovery Center, and the Not So Scary Halloween Festival.
Pumpkin Patches & Corn Mazes
What better way to celebrate fall than to let your little ones roam freely through fields of pumpkins and corn stocks. See a full list of pumpkin patches and corn mazes, here.
