Gulfport, a sleepy suburb of St. Petersburg, invites you to take a stroll along the main street.

Every Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Gulfport hosts the popular Fresh Market, where vendors offer fresh fish, local and organic produce, freshly baked breads, cheese, nuts, muesli, herbs, garden plants, flowers and a variety of artfully crafted handmade soaps and body products, candles, jewelry, art and other handicrafts. Live music complements the festive market atmosphere.

On Labor Day weekend, the entire city is abuzz with GeckoFest. Crazy costumes, many with a lizard theme, food vendors, a big stage featuring local bands and a walking parade are some of the highlights. If you are visiting, this is the perfect time to don a costume.
