Mississippi Aquarium’s annual fundraiser, Hancock Whitney Sea of Stars is returning to Jones Park in Gulfport on Friday, September 30, 2022. This free community celebration features food, music, and a one-of-a-kind drone lights and fireworks show! The estimated attendance in Jones Park last year for this event was 10,000+. Additionally, viewing sites popped up across the beach, at local hotels, and restaurants.

Live Music and Food Starts at 5:00 p.m. in Jones Park with no cost for admission. Bring blankets and chairs. Try out one of over 20 food trucks and beverages for purchase at Gulfport Chamber of Commerce's Marina StrEATs Food Truck Festival.

If you missed it last year, Hancock Whitney Sea of Stars features drones launched into the darkness above the beautiful Gulf, creating illuminated three-dimensional shapes and characters, such as alligators, dolphins, and turtles. This unique light show is choreographed to a soundtrack of classic and modern favorites.... did we mention fireworks? This year, the fireworks show will be bigger and better!
