Pascagoula Hosts First Official Cruisin The Coast Event

Cruisin' the Coast made its debut in Pascagoula Wednesday night. It's the first organized cruisin' event for the city.

"I just think its great for Pascagoula.  You know we're all recovering from Katrina, and I think it'll just bring the community closer together than we already are," Pascagoula resident Wanda Tira said. 

"You always see it at other places on TV and you have to travel. But it's really good when it comes locally, so local people can have fun without having to travel," Pascagoula resident Connie Dunaway said.

Joe Vance has attended Cruisin' The Coast for eight years. He says even though Pascagoula is new to the line-up, he's impressed with what the city had to offer.

"They got a pretty good event going on tonight. I like Rock & Roll a lot, but Country & Western's just as good when you're in an atmosphere like this, you know," said Biloxi resident Joe Vance.

Everyone has their cruisin' favorites, but among them all there was one type of beauty that was a standout.

"I like Chevrolets," Vance said.

"I'm a big fan of the Chevys," Dunaway said.

"57 Chevy is my favorite," Tira said.

But the cars weren't the only ones to take center stage. Impact, Pascagoula High School's show choir kicked off the evening's entertainment line-up. Modern El Dorado, a local band, also played some oldies but goodies.

But, later that night, it was a country music superstar that stole the show. Blake Shelton took the stage to get the crowd moving and close out what became a successful cruisin first for Pascagoula.

    Alberto is on its way. But the calm before the storm has given boat owners and people time to both prepare and enjoy some recreational time before the Memorial Day weekend gets cut short.
