Another successful Memorial Day Blowout

It’s a wrap for the 36th annual Mississippi Gulf Coast Memorial Day Blowout.

More than 700 people packed up and left the Gulfport Dragway today following another successful blowout. The hundreds that came out to enjoy the weekend’s festivities didn’t let a little rain stop all the fun.

Blowout-goers still enjoyed plenty of live music, bike shows, and races while remembering and honoring our nation’s fallen heroes. Event coordinator Asgard Buff said, “Talking to some of the older members and stuff, there were times, this is our 36th year of doing this, there were times when it was just one hundred percent rain for the whole weekend so it’s like this isn’t bad, but we enjoyed ourselves. Everyone that was here enjoyed themselves. We’re looking forward to next year.”

Event organizers hope for better weather and an even better turnout next year for the 37th annual Memorial Day Blowout.
