Pascagoula Preps for Cruisin’ the Coast

The city of Pascagoula is getting all spruced up for cruisers this weekend. It’s the second time around for the city, as they prepare for this year’s opening Cruisin’ event. They are expecting the Goula Cruise and Bachtoberfest to draw in even more people this year.
The grass is being cut, banners are up and Beach Park in Pascagoula is ready to go for this weekend’s Cruisin’ the Coast events. Events crank up at 11:30 a.m. with Bachtoberfest, a family fun event with music, food and classic cars. “It’s an all you can eat festival of local flavors, barbeque, German food and a beer garden. And of course there are kid activities,” said Community Events Coordinator Suzanne Steinberger.
Nine months of prep work goes into Cruisin’ the Coast in Pascagoula. This is the city’s second year being a part of one of America’s largest antique car shows and city leaders want to show off what they have to offer. “Pascagoula is a beautiful place. It’s missed a lot of the time so we’re trying to put it on the map a little bit more,” said Steinberger.
Local businesses are also getting involved in Cruisin’ the Coast. Pascagoula’s Tire and Service is lending out their parking lot for an information booth where volunteers will pass out detailed maps on where to park and where the shuttle routes are located. “We want to make everyone feel welcome. Pascagoula is a very friendly town. The entire Coast is a friendly area. We want folks to come back and see us, not only at Cruisin’ time but other parts of the year, other times of the year we have a lot going on in the city and along the Coast. It’s beneficial for the businesses to get involved,” said Lt. Doug Adams.
Police will be at the information booth along with other volunteers from the city. With the location right after the train tracks on Market Street, officials say it’s the ideal location to help tourists if they need directions to Beach Park.
It all starts with Bachtoberfest at Pascagoula’s Beach Park at 11 a.m. on Sunday, followed by the Goula Cruise from 2 to 6 p.m.
