Try Biggest cruise in in the south east! Over 4,500 cars registered last year. Held every October for a week. There are 5-6 towns along the 30+ mile Gulf Coast of Mississippi that sponsor cruise areas. The idea is for you to cruise up and down the coast and park in an area for a while, then go to another. The maiin area is between Gulfport and Biloxi, but if you don't go to the "ends" you miss 30% or more of the cars. Everything from bone stockers to full drag cars (ever saw an extended nose, 426 Hemi powere Nash Metropolitan?) participate. Of course the drag cars don't drive up and down the streets. There is live entertainment, poker runs, etc. at each location. That's the ONLY thing I'll miss about living in Gulfport MS when I leave next year. Well, will miss my job (USAF Instructor) a little too.
