Come Join in on the Fun at Cruisin’ the Coast 2018!
Mississippi’s Cruisin’ the Coast is just a couple short weeks away! It’s time to tune those engines, buff out that last coat of wax, and shine up those tires because you only have a little time before you are “Cruisin'” along Beach Boulevard. What started back in 1996 as a festival to showcase antique and hot rod vehicles has evolved into becoming one of Mississippi Gulf Coast’s greatest events and “America’s Largest Block Party”, so come join us for the fun! Only 374 vehicles registered during the first year in 1996. Last year, in 2017, there were over 8,300 cars registered from 40 of the 50 United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, and even car enthusiasts from Sweden and Germany joined in on the Cruisin’ Celebrations!
So what exactly is Cruisin’ the Coast? Well, it’s been said to be one of America’s Largest Block Parties. Every year for what stretches over the course of a full week in early fall, car enthusiasts from all over come to cruise along our Mississippi’s beautiful beach for the 30-miles of our coastline highway, Beach Boulevard. This year, this incredible event happens to be kicking off officially on September 30th and the fun lasts through October 7th, so be sure to mark your calendars!
During that full week packed with entertainment and fun, the great cities of Bay of St. Louis, Biloxi, Long Beach, D’Iberville, Biloxi, Gulfport, Ocean Springs, and Pass Christian host venues all along our stunning Mississippi Gulf Coast. These event venues typically include delicious, coastal cuisine food vendors, live music from great local bands, themed event merchandise, and designated parking for registered cruisers and spectators. As a registered cruiser, you get access into all the venues and reserved parking. Cruisers can also partake in the festivities with official events like cruise-ins, a Salute to our Veterans, car auctions, swap meets, and more! Whether you’re registered or just a spectator, if you like to talk cars, you’ve come to the right place.
