The City of Ocean Springs is set to kick off their ‘Cruisin’ the Coast’ festivities tomorrow.
One of the big events is the Sock Hop downtown on Friday. This will also feature the ‘Chicks Picks Car Contest,’ which may include some of the News 25 crew voting on their favorite hot rod.
Ocean Springs Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Cynthia Dobbs Sutton tells News 25 that ‘Cruisin’ the Coast’ has a six million dollar economic impact to the community. “For us, we get more and more attendees that come. We have kinda noticed this year that a lot of the attendees, families and friends have actually came in a week earlier to start doing their shopping and enjoy some of the things we have in Ocean Springs.”
Live entertainment in downtown Ocean Springs will start at 4 p.m., but the Sock Hop starts at 5.
