This FREE Event sponsored by the Gulfport Merchants Association, The City of Gulfport and The Gulfport Chamber of Commerce, St. Petersburg Times, Bright House Networks, GEICO, and Zhu-niverse and is a full day of fun for everyone.

A 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!

Zhu-universe and Camels in Motion will take over the children’s area this year. Camel rides for the whole family PLUS inflatable habitat trails, human hamster wheel, six set obstacle course, Nintendo DS Hand held systems, Wii kiosks, photo opportunities, Zhu Zhu Pets & Kung Zhu Product and accessories showcase, give-a-ways, ID clips, Music and more!

Join the o-FISH-al GECKO Goddess and the Gecko Court along with Kim Magic and other roving characters, 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 adults & children’s costume contests and a hat contest at the end.

Costume categories this year will include best Wonderland Theme, 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 10th Anniversary!
