33rd Annual Mississippi Gulf Coast Memorial Day Blowout
The days are getting longer and the wisteria is in bloom, which means Spring has sprung and another Memorial Day Blowout is right around the corner. The ASGARD M.C. is preparing to host their 33rd Annual Blowout at the Gulfport Dragway in Gulfport, Mississippi. This four-day event will run from May 22nd through the 25th, and the gates are open 24 hours a day. Plenty of events are scheduled, including drag races, and ’biker events’ such as the slow race, weenie bite contest, ring toss, barrel race, bike show and tattoo contest. The contests are open to all, and are run-what-you-brung, so come on down and bring your “A game.” Lots of vendors will be on hand to meet all of your food and beverage needs, with plenty of biker apparel and what-nots. There is room for RV parking and primitive camping for those who are so inclined, with close proximity to hotels for those who prefer a hot shower and cold AC. Entry fees are $40 per person for the entire weekend plus $20 per non-bike vehicle, or $20 per person (plus vehicle fee) for Sunday-only access. The good times are not limited to the event itself however, as there are plenty of restaurants and casinos in the area in case you decide to seek alternative entertainment off the gated private property on which the event is held. For more information go to www.mississippigulfcoastmemorialdayblowout.com, and be sure to make your hotel reservations in advance, or you may be availing yourself of the primitive camping whether you planned to or not!

Although the event is not recommended for children (too much adult-themed naughtybadfun?), the weekend is actually all about the children. This is a charitable event, and the proceeds go to the Multiple Sclerosis Society and the Boys and Girls Clubs, as well as other charitable causes. The ASGARD M.C. is well-known for their efforts to help their community through the Blowout and the Toys-For-Tots toy run held every year, so come on down and have a good time for a good cause, and help these guys help children in need. I promise that being ’bad’ has never felt so good!
