Pascagoula will once again be a venue for hundreds of classic cars, as Cruisin' the Coast returns to the City after a seven-year hiatus.
The City of Pascagoula will host an opening event for cruisers which will run in conjunction with the Gulf Coast Symphony Orchestra's Bachtoberfest on October 5th.
"We are looking forward to once again seeing Pascagoula filled with people and classic cars," said Mayor Jim Blevins. "We are extremely grateful for the opportunity to have this event restored, and cannot thank Cruisin' the Coast and the Gulf Coast Symphony Orchestra enough for their partnership in this endeavor."
Sgt. Doug Adams of the Pascagoula Police says, “Back in 2007, we had a couple successful events. We've got the Beach Park, we've got the Lighthouse Park now, we've got some new businesses in town that are going to take part in it, got some new places to stay.”
Lisa Catchot, the owner of Rosalie’s Boutique, says, “I’m also hoping that it will not only enhance the business here at Rosalie’s, but also all the businesses downtown as they come down here and see that Pascagoula does have things to offer.”
The festivity details and the Cruisin' route are still being finalized, but people can expect to find food, children's activities, and live entertainment in both Beach Park and Lighthouse Park. Pascagoula's Cruisin' event will immediately follow Zonta on October 4th, making for a full weekend of fun and events for the whole family!
