The City of Gautier will host its second annual Cruisin’ through the Decades, an official Cruisin’ the Coast event, on Sept. 30, 2018. The event, held at 2800 Highway 90, will feature live entertainment, car shows, food, and trophies for crowd favorites. The event runs 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Gautier event helps kick off the weeklong Cruisin’ the Coast event. “Last year was an overwhelming success, with nearly 300 vehicles registering and even more showing up to support us,” City Manager Paula Yancey said. “We’re preparing for an even bigger and better event this year, with some amazing entertainment and vendors to help keep the party going.”
The Cruisin’ through the Decades concept comes from celebrating the classic cars, as well as the more modern customized vehicles. All makes, models and years are welcome at the Gautier event. There will be reserved parking and a cruisin’ lane for all cruisers. There will also be multiple People’s Choice awards for cars and motorcycles. The live music lineup will include Derek Norsworthy, Six String Andrew & Band, The Cat Daddyz, Double Dee, and Wayward Jones.
New this year will be an artistic hook. Jackson County artist Robby Amonett will be on site to memorialize the event in acrylics. Attendees will have the opportunity to have their classic cars painted on canvas right before their eyes. “We’re excited to bring this unique opportunity to cruisers who might like original artwork featuring their beloved cars,” Yancey said. “Robby is a very talented artist who the crowd will enjoy watching work his magic.”
