Gulf Coast Classic
Classic cars and cool tattoos: the combination just seems right, especially when accompanied by the sounds of revving motorcycle engines and rockabilly bands. The Gulf Coast Classic is a three-day festival celebrating body art, bikes, and striking four-wheeled vehicles that range from roadsters so antique they were once pulled by horses to 1970s Mustangs. The atmosphere is part motorcycle rally, part family-friendly summer festival. Throughout the weekend, guests can wander from competing cars to tattoo-shop booths to a pin-up contest to a stage buzzing with with classic rock, alternative, and top 40 jams.
