The seventh annual Gecko Pub Crawl is Saturday, Aug. 9, 5 to 9 p.m.
GULFPORT - The seventh annual Gecko Pub Crawl on Saturday, Aug. 9, 5 to 9 p.m., will be the first of three events that herald the opening of Gecko Season in Gulfport.

For $20 Pub Crawlers will be able to enjoy a beverage at six Gulfport locations.

Participating businesses are Beach Haus, Little Tommie’s Tiki, Mangia Gourmet, Neptune Grille, O’Maddy’s, and Salty’s of Gulfport, all located within easy walking distance in the Gulfport Waterfront Arts District.

Crawlers may start at any participating location and continue their Crawl in any order.

An After-Party will be held at Salty’s from 9 to 10 p.m. and will feature awards, drawings and live music.

A Poker Run game of Five Card Stud will again add to the evening’s festivities. Crawlers will be dealt a free card from a Crawl Ambassador at each location when they pick up their drink token. Up to three extra cards may also be purchased for $5 each at Salty’s during check in. The Grand Prize for best poker hand will be a two-night stay at the Sirata Beach Resort on St. Pete Beach.

Raffle drawings will also be held during the After Party, with various prizes, including the chance to win a pair of coveted tickets to this year’s Roaring Geckos Gecko Ball.

Participants for poker and raffle awards must be present to win.

Tickets are available in advance from the Gulfport Beach Bazaar’s Box Office, located at 3115 Beach Blvd. S., Gulfport and at all participating businesses during the Crawl.

A portion of proceeds from all events will be donated to one or more local charitable organizations to be determined.
