Cities getting revved up for Cruisers

By WLOX Staff

SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - Cities across South Mississippi are gearing up for Cruisin' the Coast. The weeklong classic car celebration kicks off Sunday, October 4th in Gulfport when thousands of car enthusiasts make their way to the first official Cruise In at Hardy Court Plaza.

As of August 15th, more than 3,000 people were registered to take part in the Cruisin' the Coast. Click here to see a complete schedule of events. 

Biloxi city and county work crews are already busy cutting grass and edging the medians along Highway 90. Drivers are asked to use caution when approaching these work zones, or similar ones in other coast cities.

The City of Biloxi sent a post card this week to downtown property owners explaining where cruisers will be allowed to park during a block party set for the morning of Wednesday, October 7th from 8am to 2pm.

Pass Christian will host a similar downtown Block Party along Davis Avenue Thursday, October 8th from 5pm to 8pm. Dita McCarthy, President of Pass Christian Farmers Market, said the block party is a way for local merchants to celebrate and highlight the uniqueness of their seaside community. 

"We hope families and friends will come out to enjoy the music, art, and fellowship," McCarthy said.  "Pass Christian businesses are devoted to community and economic development; we're proud to have every business here."

Pass in the Night will kick off with a ribbon cutting for the Pass Christian Farmers Market's new location at 115 Davis Avenue. You can visit www.passinthenight.com for more information including a site map and a list of participants.
