People all over the country are here in South Mississippi, for the annual Jeepin the Coast event that kicked off Thursday!
The event that started as a one day parade coinciding with Cruisin’ the Coast is now bigger than ever. Jeepin the Coast is four days jam packed with events like beach rides, a parade, scavenger hunt, poker run, a block party, and more!
Last week, more than 900 jeeps registered for this year’s event. On-site registration will take place at Hollywood Casino the first day of Jeepin.
If you don’t have a jeep, no worries. Coordinators say spectating is also a fun part of the experience. Jeepin the Coast Founder Jennifer Moran said, “Do like we do for Cruisin! Sit on the side of the road and just watch these beautiful rides pass by. And Saturday come out and enjoy our parade. It starts at 6, but all day long we will have events going on right here in Long Beach at Town Green. We will have things for the kids to do. We will have food vendors and jeep vendors, all kinds of vendors. It’s just going to be a great day.”
So if you are ready to cruise 26 miles of the beautiful Mississippi Gulf Coast don’t forget to come out any of those four days.
