BILOXI, Miss. (AP) - The 20th year of Cruisin’ The Coast is running ahead of last year’s record pace with just a month to go to pre-register vehicles.

At the end of June, 3,851 antique and classic vehicles were registered - 205 ahead for the same time a year ago. Woody Bailey, Cruisin’ The Coast executive director, tells The Sun Herald (https://bit.ly/29BkY23) registration since has climbed over 4,000.

A record 7,639 Cruisers registered last year and Bailey said this year owners from 39 states, Canada and Australia already have signed up for the event.

Pre-registration closes Aug. 15 and doesn’t reopen until the festival that runs Oct. 2-9 in South Mississippi.
