One of my favorite bands on the Mississippi Coast is Caution Swing Bridge. They are a group of doctors who play jazz/swing music for special events like the Peter Anderson Festival. Loved that I caught them this year.
The annual Peter Anderson Festival in Ocean Springs is two days of pottery, art, music, crafty stuff, junk and food that smells good – all crammed into a few downtown streets.
Love the atmosphere – hoards of people shuffling along Washington or Government streets, trying to duck quickly out of the traffic flow to look at the wares in one booth or another, and dashing back to rejoin the ever-moving stream of bodies.
The other wonderful thing about going to Peter Anderson is catching up with friends I haven’t seen in a long time – like Glenn Miller, Chris Stebly and Karen Bryant.
