Cruisin’ The Coast Condensing Weekend Schedule Ahead of Weather Issues
Cruisin’ The Coast® officials have decided to condense the remaining events in this year’s cruise as a result of weather issues associated with the incoming tropical system. Executive Director Woody Bailey said that today’s events will continue as planned, but the weekend activities will be abbreviated.
“We encourage Cruisers to enjoy today as planned. Tomorrow, Saturday, our Cruisin’ venues and other activities will be cancelled except for our closing activities at Cruise Central,” Bailey said.
Saturday’s events will begin at 9 a.m. and will consist of cash prize giveaways, drawing the winning ticket for the Make-A-Wish® Raffle Truck, and the unveiling of the 2018 raffle vehicle.
Gates to Cruise Central in Gulfport at Centennial Plaza will open at 8 a.m. tomorrow (Saturday).
“We want our Cruisers and guests to have the best time possible and enjoy the Mississippi Gulf Coast to the fullest, but still head home with time to clear the area before we begin to feel effects of the storm,” Bailey said. “We appreciate everyone’s understanding and cooperation.”
Cruisin’ organizers said that participant stamping cards should be turned in at any stamping venue before 5 p.m. today so they may be entered into the drawing tomorrow. “We will accept them with or without their stamping being completed,” said Bailey. He also said that for those not present, winnings will be mailed later next week. There will be no official Cruisin’ activities or events on Sunday.
Here is the schedule of events for Cruisin’ the Coast 2017. Cruisin’ the Coast takes place September 30th through October 8th.
