NEW this year, organizers have added a “Weird Wheels” component to the 10th Annual Holiday Hoopla. Join us in a celebration of arts, crafts, foods, holiday music and roving holiday characters set in a waterfront atmosphere, from 10:00 AM until 5:00 PM on December 8th. The festival will provide shoppers with one-of-a-kind gifts from small businesses, and all of your holiday shopping can be done in one place!
Weird Wheels, is open to any decorated wheeled vehicle, regardless of the number of wheels, powered or unpowered, but must be capable of transporting at least one person.
Judges will decide the top winners in 3 categories: Most Original, Best in Show and Business Wheels.
Peoples Choice paper ballots will be available to the public to vote on their favorite. A Peoples Choice trophy will be awarded to whoever garners the most votes.
Vehicles will enter at 28th Ave. S. Between 10-11:30 AM.
There is no entry fee for vehicles to enter, but please bring a new unwrapped gift to support Gulfport’s Operation Santa!
No need to get your tinsel in a tangle! There’s never a fee for parking or admission and we even offer you transportation to/from offsite parking areas. As a bonus, a portion of the proceeds from the event hosted by the non-profit Gulfport Merchant’s Chamber will benefit Operation Santa and Gulfport families in need.
