As the weather cools, Pass Christian’s First Saturday Artwalk will be heating up with live music and shopping specials around town.
Pass Christian Main Street sponsors the monthly event from 5 to 8 p.m.
It provides the perfect venue for families to visit the restaurants and shops along Davis Avenue and rediscover what Pass Christian has to offer.
For November, Pass Main Street will stand with the Movember Foundation to raise awareness about men’s health issues. Fake mustaches will be handed out for people to wear and pose for pictures.
Cody Roth will be playing live music at Sazerac Square from 6 to 8 p.m. The Waveland-native’s music provides positive lyrics over a contemporary acoustic sound in the vein of Dave Matthews and Jack Johnson.
Roth plays a variety of originals and covers a mix of modern and classic acoustic rock songs.
Nearby, Art Alley in the Pass will host renown papier-maché artist Joseph Barth from 5 to 8 p.m.
Barth is a New Orleans resident with years of experience constructing floats for Mardi Gras krewes in the city.
His papier-maché method results in a light weight but durable piece of art. His creations include whimsical classic cars driven by shrimp, colorful sea life and tableaus of New
Orleans culture that include oysters, poboys and Dixie beer.
Refreshments and gourmet samples will be served during the event.
Across Davis Avenue from Sazerac Square, Cigars in the Pass will host Puro Vida Cigars, a hand-rolled cigar maker based on the Mississippi Gulf Coast in Biloxi.
Puro Vida owner Eddie Rivers will be on site from 4 to 8 p.m. to discuss his products and process.
For $12, participants get to smoke a Nicaraguan-blend, Toro-style cigar. Participants will also be served shrimp creole and entered into a drawing for a five-pack of cigars.
