First Saturday filled with mustaches, music and more

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.

Merchants and restaurants around town will also be open late with specials and deals.

Cruisin’ the Coast in Pass Christian

Posted: October 8th, 2014, by editor

Pass Christian officials and business leaders are gearing up for another record breaking year for Cruisin’ the Coast and have planned a community party October 10.

Over 6,000 people have pre-registered for the 18th annual event and organizers expect another 1,500 to register on-site. An additional 2,000 are estimated to take a free ride and participate without registering, said organizer Adam Pace.

Last year’s event brought thousands of visitors to town and generated a $12,000 impact on city sales tax revenue.

“This year Cruisin’ is estimated to bring a $20,000 impact to the city,” Pace said.

While city coffers benefit from sales tax diversions, Pass Christian businesses stand to benefit from the estimated $1.5 million in consumer spending that generates the additional tax revenue.

An new Friday night event is planned by Main Street to keep people in town and allow residents who are normally working to come out and join the festivities, said Jennifer Burke, executive director.

Bag of Donuts is scheduled to play at 6:30 p.m. at the pavilion.

“This is a community event with a  tremendous economic impact without trash or crime,” Pace said. “We can show off our community, businesses, seafood and new harbor without any side effects.”

The weeklong Cruisin’ event started Sunday in Gulfport with a cruise in at the Hardy Court Shopping Center.

Pass Christian joins the action Thursday through Saturday as a full stamping site will live music throughout the day.

Streets will close each day of Cruisin’ from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for event traffic. Spectators can park at the harbor, on Second east of Davis, or elsewhere close to the route.

The cruising route will start on Scenic Drive at War Memorial Park. Cars turn north on Davis Avenue, west on Second Street, and south on Market Street where they can exit on Highway 90.

Cruisers can either drive along the route or park their cars for display. The 200-block of Davis will also be used for cruisers parking up to Port in a Storm.

Live bands will perform at the Davis Avenue Pavilion each day from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

On Friday from 10 a.m. to noon, Count’s Kustoms crew will visit. The crew star in Counting Cars, a reality television show about a Las Vegas automobile restoration and customization company that airs on History Channel.

A food court is planned for Davis Avenue next to Asian Paradise. Burke said any Pass business or restaurant looking to have a presence downtown is welcome to join.

Main Street is also seeking volunteers to assist Cruisin’ officials or work the food and beverage area.

Residents and business owners that need to access the route will be given passes to get through barricades.
