Hot Rods running up and down the Mississippi coastline has proven to be time well spent

We’ve been going to Cruisin’ the Coast for over 10 years and what started out as a really good event has now become a great event, one we look forward to each and every year. The event is truly a cruise that encompasses seven different destinations along the Mississippi coast line.

For the first few years of the event it was billed as a three-day event but over time, and by popular demand, that has morphed into a week of non-stop cruising that includes good bands at every site, great seafood and a variety of cars that cover every year, style and design you could ever imagine.

From Bay St. Louis to Biloxi to Ocean Springs and four other towns in between, the local people are friendly and the hundreds of volunteers that make this event possible and go out of their way to ensure you are having a good time. Beyond the cruising you can also take in a big swap meet, attend a car auction and even enter a burnout contest.

If you have never been to this event put it on your list and after attending your first Cruisin’ the Coast don’t be surprised if you decide to make this annual trek to gather with 7,000 of your closest friends. The event is typically held in early October, dubbed as America’s Largest Block Party and we have every intention of joining in the fun and help celebrate 25 years of cruisin’. MR
