The 12th Annual Gulfport Gecko Fest is set for Saturday, September 1st, 2012.
This FREE Event sponsored by the Gulfport Merchants Association, The City of Gulfport and The Gulfport Area Chamber of Commerce and Cox Media and is a full day of fun for everyone. This whimsical send off to summer is like Mardi Gras meets the Renaissance, and brings together strolling street performers, main stage performers, performing artists and vendors with all types of weird and wonderful wares up and down Beach Blvd. Over 200 arts, craft and food vendors will be in attendance at this year’s event!
Join the o-FISH-al GECKO Goddess and the Gecko Court along with other roving characters provided by Your Total Entertainment, who will be roaming the streets and entertaining the crowds! Live entertainment will be provided on two main stages from noon till 10 p.m.
Don’t forget this is an audience participation event especially the parade (6pm…think Renaissance meets Mardi Gras: wacky, noisy, and costumed and join in anywhere on the route!) with costume contests at the end. Costume categories this year will include best “Hooray for Geckowood!” themed costume, best decorated Umbrella and best Hat, for both children and adults.
The day culminates in Gulfport’s famous -STREET DANCE at 8:00 pm! Bring your dancing shoes, and help celebrate our 12th Anniversary!
