This year’s GeckoFest theme is “game night”, and Gulfport brought out the cards for the Aug. 13 Gecko Crawl. Event organizers set up tables at Caddy’s, Gulfport Brewery, Neptune Grill, North End Taphouse, O’Maddy’s, and Tiki Bar and Grill. Participants drew a playing card at each location.
With four gecko-themed events throughout the month-long gecko season, Gulfport gets an infusion of tourists in late summer. Some businesses say they see their busiest days of the year this month, but others say it doesn’t help their businesses.
