39th annual Memorial Day Blowout returns to the Gulf Coast

Rev those engines South Mississippi because the 39th annual Memorial Blow Out is back in Gulfport.

The weekend long event held at Gulfport Dragway will host 100 acres of exciting features such as racing, music, games, vendors, and more.

Some of the games featured at the event include ring tosses, barrel races, a tattoo contest, and the weenie bite.

Proceeds will go back to the community and several charitable organizations including the Boys and Girls Club.

The gates opened up at noon today and will stay all the way until Memorial Day. Asgard Motorcycle Club Secretary Asgard Cyrus said, “It’s the people. You know, it’s…they get together and they do amazing things, like – you know – somebody off the street will come with their motorcycle and say ‘I want to run down the track and race.’ Have at it! Do your thing. Get your bragging rights in, so it’s people.”

Tickets for the weekend are $40 per person or $20 for a Sunday pass.
