We are going to light up the sky with fireworks this 4th of July!

Fireworks will be shot from Moses Jetty in the Gulfport Municipal Marina. Anticipated Shoot Time is 8:45pm.
Best viewing locations – Gulfport Municipal Marina; Jones Park; Hwy 90 west of Hewes Avenue

This year in order to better accommodate families for viewing and safety purposes, we will implement a “Buffer zone area” from 15th Street to Hwy 49, south of Hwy 90 and fireworks will be prohibited in this area.

Please remember that Moses Jetty/Pier will be closed on Saturday, July 4th starting at 6am until the conclusion of fireworks display/cleanup due to 4th of July Fireworks being shot off! We hope you all have a safe 4th of July!

On June 05, 2006 Ron was promoted to Assistant Director of Public Works where he continued the Hurricane Katrina recovery as well as many other tasks. Ron has helped implement many programs during his time here. Ron is an active member of the American Public Works Association (APWA) and planned the 2014 APWA State Conference that was hosted by the City of Gulfport in October 2014. This event was very organized and several attendees mentioned that this was the best conference they have ever attended. 

Ron has proven his dedication throughout his career with Public Works. His work ethic and skills are unmatched. He became a mentor to many young employees, helping with their personal and professional growth. His caring nature was important to the professional service of our department. Using his talents, Ron has helped those around him have a better quality of life. Ron is an asset to the Public Works field and he will be missed by many!
