BILOX, MS (WLOX) - Ladies and gentlemen start your engines for this weekend's Championship Hot Rod Races. Cars and trucks from the 1980's and beyond will take the track. The gates open Saturday at the Gulfport Dragway at 9:00 a.m. and the races begin at 10:00 a.m.

Get your dog's Halloween costume out for this weekend's Bark for a Cure. Your pooch could go home top dog because there are lots of awards to be given out. All the fun is for a good cause; proceeds go to the American Cancer Society. Head on out to the D'Iberville Farmer's market pavilion Saturday beginning at 9:00 a.m.

If you're a fan of mixed martial arts get your tickets ring side because some of the biggest and baddest guys are in town vying for the championship. The whistle blows at 6:30 at the Coast Coliseum.

Rock legend and star of "Spirit of the Wild" Ted Nugent is in South Mississippi. You can see Nugent crank up his Gibson Byrdland Friday night at the Hard Rock Casino. The show kicks off at 8 p.m.

Need a vacation? The Lynn Meadows Discovery Center and the Boys and Girls Club invite you to The Jolly Mon!. The fun summer musical fantasy, based on the book and song by Jimmy Buffett, will make you feel like your lying on the beach in the Caribbean. You can catch the performance Friday, Saturday or Sunday at MGCCC's Jefferson Davis campus.

We want to hear about your events. If you have something going on make sure to post it on our community calendar.
