BILOXI, Miss. (AP) - Jimmy Buffett again has a presence in Biloxi, and a crowd turned out to open the new Margaritaville Resort Biloxi.

The Sun Herald reports (http://bit.ly/28Vo1o1) stilt walkers helped cut the ribbon and huge margaritas appeared for dignitaries Thursday before the first customers hurried inside.

Buffett couldn’t attend the ribbon-cutting, but sent a message.

Buffett said he hopes to get to the new resort for a quick visit in July and definitely for Saints games and angling for redfish.

Biloxi Mayor Andrew “FoFo” Gilich compared the excitement around the new family resort with when the first casino opened just next door in 1992.

Margaritaville Resort Biloxi offers games for all ages and a volcano climbing wall that “erupts” periodically in the Margaritaville restaurant as climbers enter through the floor.
