Emerald Coast Cruizin’ Returns for Spring 2019!

It’s that time of year again! Hop in your car, put Mustang Sally on the radio, head southbound on the highway, Emerald Coast Cruizin’ is back again with its semi-annual classic car event. This year’s spring event is even more anticipated than usual because the fall event of 2018 was unfortunately canceled due to Hurricane Michael. However, this might be good news for you. There will be even more cars than ever. Emerald Coast Cruizin’ in Panama City Beach is an event you won’t want to miss.

Driving into town you will start to see classic cars and hot rods at every turn. This is an event that is hard to miss in more ways than one. Whether you are a car enthusiast, a hot rod specialist, or just a spectator you are going to love Emerald Coast Cruizin’ in Panama City Beach. There will be contests and door prizes every day so don’t miss your chance to win some fantastic prizes. With face painting, a remote-controlled racetrack, family games, and many more activities the kids are in for a fun time as well.

Emerald Coast Cruizin' in Panama City Beach, Florida

The beautiful weather compliments what an amazing event this really is. Seeing the gorgeous Florida sun bounce off the immaculate pearlescent paint on these pristine hot rods is truly a sight to see. While you are wandering through the seemingly endless rows of vehicles you’ll want to keep your ears open as well, because there is great music line up including artists such as Ronnie McDowell and John Schnieder. With vendors such as Hammerhead Fred’s and Sharky’s, you might also be hearing your stomach rumbling for some delicious, fresh Gulf of Mexico cuisine.

Holiday Inn Express & Suites is a preferred lodging partner of Emerald Coast Cruizin’ in Panama City Beach. Even though you may want to spend your entire trip at the event, sadly you can’t sleep there. That’s where we come in!

With our location just three short miles away from the venue, you are sure to not miss any of the engine revving action. After you’ve spent a long day out and about, you’ll want to head back and take a dip in our beachfront hot tub or float through our lazy river with a drink from our Indigo Bar & Grille. March is a beautiful time to be at the beach with us. With the warm Florida sun finally cutting through the brisk air of winter, it is the ideal time to visit.

This year’s event takes place Wednesday, March 6th, 2018 through Saturday, March 9th, 2018 at Aaron Bessant Park and is located on the west side of Pier Park, a short walk from the beach.
