It’s Gecko Season in Gulfport!

GECKO SEASON in Gulfport celebrates the end of summer each year honoring our favorite reptile!  Our town represents its quirky nature  with fun-filled events stretching from the beginning of August through Labor Day weekend.  A first annual “Gecko Artists Show” is now on display at the Catherine Hickman Theater.  The annual “Gecko Pub Crawl” was held earlier this month.  And we are still looking forward to the 7th Annual Gecko Ball on August 29th, and the 15th Annual GeckoFest on September 5th.

“Gecko Gras!” is the theme of this year’s festivities, with Mardi Gras-style costumes (intermixed with gecko costumes) and festivities being flaunted at each event.  A few tickets are still available for the Gecko Ball, known as Gulfport’s “Party of the Year”!  And GeckoFest, our largest and oldest street festival, is a FREE day-long, family-friendly celebration.  A portion of proceeds from all Gecko events are donated to local charities each year.
