19th Annual CRUISIN’ THE COAST
Description

Billed as America’s largest block party, last year’s Cruisin’ the Coast brought a record 7,293 vehicles from 39 states. Registration for 2015 is running ahead of pace with more than 3,500 cars from 40 states already registered with three months to go. Organizers are planning for more than 8,000 registered cars in 2015.

What began nineteen years ago as a festival to celebrate antique, hot rod and classic cars and nostalgic music, with just 374 registered cars, has grown into one of the Mississippi’s largest special events. Cruisin’ the Coast’s economic impact has been calculated at more than $25 million annually. 

Beau Rivage is once again a major sponsor with a weeklong Cruisin’ the Coast schedule of its own. Beau Rivage will kick off 2015 Cruisin’ the Coast with an autograph signing on Sunday, Oct. 3 by Cristy Lee of ALL GIRLS GARAGE on Discovery Channel’s Velocity Network. For the first time ever, MGM Park will host “Salute to our Veterans,” a car and entertainment event geared to our nation’s military from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.

Beau Rivage will host the official “Cruisin’” event on Wednesday, Oct. 7 with our annual Sock Hop in Coast. Doors open at 6 p.m., with nostalgic 50s music, specially priced food and cocktails and an autograph signing by Courtney Hansen, host of PowerNation on SpikeTV, NBC Sports and CBS Sports. Sonny Turner, the former lead singer of The Original Platters, will perform at 8 p.m. Tickets will be $5 each or free with an M life card.

Beau Rivage will have designated cruiser parking on the second floor of the parking garage. Signage will indicate it is for Cruisin’ the Coast registered cars only.

Beau Rivage will offer a special Cruisin’ the Coast drink menu in EIGHT75 and Coast all week, and BR Emporium will have a selection of themed merchandise for the event. 

The next pages show a complete Beau Rivage schedule of events. For a complete list of Cruisin’ the Coast events and entertainment, visit www.cruisinthecoast.com

CRUISIN’ THE COAST Parking

Cruiser Parking

There will be a special parking area set aside on the second floor of the parking garage for the Cruisers (registered, classic cars only, no trailers).  It is limited, so once full, cruisers can park in general parking or West Valet.  Signage will be posted that parking is at your own risk.

 

Trailer Parking

Beau Rivage has very limited parking for trailers. This is available only to registered hotel guests. We have a location across the street (opposite the Shell station at Hwy 90 and Reynoir) that will require the tow vehicle to be disconnected and parked in the Beau Rivage parking garage or elsewhere. The second option for registered hotel guests is to park at the D ‘Iberville parking lot and shuttle.
