Pascagoula to Name Bridge after Buffett

September 12th, 2015


The city of Pascagoula will rename a bridge after native son Jimmy Buffett on September 19th.

Buffett is expected to be in attendance on Saturday, Sept. 19 for the dedication of Jimmy Buffett Bridge, which spans the Baptiste Bayou.

The day will transform into one of celebration and song, as Buffett is expected to bring his guitar with him and perform a brief acoustic set to commemorate the occasion while accompanied by Coral Reefer guitarist and seven time Country Music Association Musician of the Year Mac McAnally on the beach at the corner of 11th Street and Beach Boulevard.

City officials will present Buffett with a key to the City, and the City and State Legislature will proclaim May 6th Jimmy Buffett Day at the local and state levels in honor of his parents’ wedding anniversary. Jimmy Buffett signage will also be placed at Pascagoula’s three entrances advertising it as his birthplace.

The singer-songwriter, author, actor, and entrepreneur was born Christmas Day, 1946 in the old Jackson County Hospital in Pascagoula. He moved to Mobile with his parents when he was a child.
