  Visitors and residents can count on Hancock County to be a fun place with celebrations and festivals. There’s not a better time to kick back than the Second Saturday of each month when Old Town Bay St. Louis becomes a big block party from 4 to 7 p.m. Shops stay open late, live music fills the air, and merchants serve snacks and drinks.
Sponsored by the Old Town Merchants Association, Second Saturday is known far and wide. Businesses in the one hundred and two hundred blocks of Main Street are chosen as ‘hot spots.’ That’s where
the musicians set up,
a sure way to draw crowds.
“It’s an opportunity for a business to shine,” says Vivian Anderson-Jensen
of Serious Bread. “We can put specials online and that helps get extra business. Second Saturday has done a lot for our town.”
Shay Geisel with Antique Maison agrees and says, “It’s the one time a month businesses stay open late.”
