Weekend Whereabouts: June 21-23

So many things to do this weekend and so little time to start planning; here's a detailed list of events going on in South Mississippi.

Hundreds of unique vehicles with stellar paint jobs and specialty sound systems will be at the MS Coast Coliseum and driving east and west on Highway 90 this weekend for the annual Scrapin the Coast. Listen to the stereo competition and check out the car and truck show, burnout and hydraulic contests. In addition to the vehicles, there's a bikini contest and much more.
