Gulfport closes out month-long 'Geckofest' celebration this weekend

Geckofest 2022's 'Game Night' party happens Saturday.

Every city seems to have its thing. For downtown Gulfport, just south of St. Petersburg, it’s, by and large, Geckofest.

The celebration kicked off earlier this month and culminates with this weekend on Saturday, Sept. 3 during Geckofest 2022's “Game Night” party where revelers will dress to the theme (“Geckos Against Humanity,” anyone?) and boogie to live music on two stages, street performers, the costume contest and walking parade.

And this ain’t no FantasyFest, so bring the kiddos at any point during the all-day party.

Parking can be tough—a trolley is available to get you to and from the party.
