BILOXI, Miss. (WLOX) – On Saturday, members of the Bay St. Louis community stopped in Old Town to celebrate the 2nd Saturday Art Walk.

The monthly event helps raise awareness of local businesses and suppliers. This month was very special for visitors as the Mockingbird Café celebrated its anniversary.

Elizabeth Schafer, who is from Bay St. Louis, said she never misses the opportunity to hang out with other members of the community.

“They’re celebrating – I think it’s the 16th or 17th anniversary – and that’s their way of celebrating the opening. It’s a locals favorite place, great coffee, pastries and food. There are always cool bands here, it’s a great place to hang out,” Schafer said.

Albert Ghergich said the city has a lot to offer even though it is a small city.

“Bay St. Louis is an interconnected community, there are tons of groups that exist in this community from Mardi Gras groups to social clubs to garden clubs and it’s a pretty small community. It’s a pretty small community where everything is connected, everyone knows what’s going on,” Gherigich said.

Several bands, including the classic rock band Bay St. Louis Trio, performed.

If you missed the celebration, you can always stop by the second Saturday of next month.
