The highlight of Bama Coast Cruise is Saturday’s annual Parade Cruise (to avoid over heating, average parade speed is 30 mph). Stretching out over 14 miles, the parade cruise runs from The Wharf, down the scenic beach highway and back. This allows beach goers to enjoy the parade, and our participants are able to enjoy the sugar white beaches of Alabama’s Gulf Coast. As the parade approaches, many cars along the parade route will pull off the road to wait and watch the parade ride by. One spectator commented that he got chill bumps seeing so many beautiful cars driving down the beach road. Our Parade Cruise wouldn’t be possible without the help and support of the City of Orange Beach and the Orange Beach Police Department. Orange Beach Police escort the parade, stopping traffic at intersections to keep our beach cruise moving.
Another tradition started in 2013 is our Reserved Parking for Show Cars on Main Street. A feature which is unique to Bama Coast Cruise, our Pre-Registered exhibitors who are attending all 3 days of the show can get their very own Reserved Parking Space on Main Street at the show. Space is limited and fills quickly!
Please remember; there is plenty of great show car parking at Bama Coast Cruise and we are expanding every year to accommodate our rapid growth. Just like at other Cruisin’ events, you don’t need reserved parking to attend or even to get a great spot in the show. Show Car Registration never closes, and On-Site Registration will be open all 3 days of the event.
* Some restrictions do apply for Reserved Parking, so make sure to Read the details listed here.
