CRUISIN’ THE COAST© OCT. 6-13, 2013. “America’s Largest Block Party” returns to the beautiful Mississippi Gulf Coast for its 17th year even bigger and better. We’ll have cruise-ins, a kickoff parade, auto auction, swap meet, block party, sock hop, flame thrower, live music and more. There is designated parking for thousands of registered cruisers at venues in Gulfport, Biloxi, Ocean Springs, D’Iberville, and Bay St. Louis. The cities of Pass Christian and Diamondhead get into the Cruisin’ Spirit this year, too! You can cruise along our 30-mile stretch of scenic highway as smooth as can be while taking in the coastal views. Join us and enjoy the music, food, festival atmosphere, hospitality and cars, cars and more cars. Come on down as a registered cruiser or a spectator. The 2013 raffle car is a 1979 Trans Am Bandit Edition we call “Burt.” Early registration ends August 15. For online registration and more information, visit or call us toll free at 1-888-808-1188.
