TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - People visiting the Blue Suede Cruise in Tupelo will be able to carry alcohol outside of nearby bars and restaurants at an earlier time.
The city says the commission that governs the BancorpSouth Arena voted to extend the Leisure and Entertainment District hours this Friday beginning at 11 a.m. rather than the normal start time of 5 p.m.
This change is just for the classic car event.
The go-cup ordinance allows people 21 years old and older in that district to carry alcohol outside of an establishment into the open, given they strictly follow specific rules.
The ordinance's standard hours are Thursday and Friday from 5 p.m. to midnight as well as Saturday from 10 a.m. to midnight.
