The car-loving MOPAR clubs will be back at Cruisin’ the Coast this year, dishing out delicious free food, giving away prizes and enjoying rock ’n roll on the grounds of the Historic Train Depot. And once again this year, the public is invited to join in the day-long celebration.
Things will get started at 9 am on Oct. 7 and will go strong until 7:30 pm for the second annual MOPAR Day in Da Bay, hosted by MOPARS on the Coast of Hahnville, La., and the Big Easy MOPAR Association.

MOPAR and Cruisin’ are a natural fit, and this year organizers are expecting the event to attract 300 to 400 cars, said Lonnie Falgout, executive director of the Alice Moseley Folk Art & Antique Museum, who was instrumental in bringing the MOPAR clubs to the Depot last year.
The museum, along with the Hancock County Tourism Bureau and the City of Bay St. Louis, are welcoming the event, which is sponsored by the Hollywood Casino, Champion Dodge and Daiquiri Shak.
Last year, MOPAR Day in Da Bay brought together club members and other Cruisers for the club’s 10th annual picnic and festival. The move to the Bay came after nine years in Long Beach. Attendees gave the new location high marks, and organizers have committed to the Depot location through 2025, Falgout said.
This year’s musical entertainment will feature local favorites Assumed Risk 12:30 - 3:30 pm, and Joni Compretta and Baytown Groove 4 - 7 pm.
