Dan and Juju Stevens dressed for the second annual Gulfport Thanksgiving on the Beach (also called the Gecko Gobble or the Gulfport Social Thanksgiving). Organizers estimated that almost 100 people attended the event, organized by – among others – Jon Ziegler and Leigh Hanson.
Everyone brought a dish to share and event organizers provided plates, flatware, and napkins. Organizers used Facebook to carry out the day’s event, which included plenty of food, bocce ball and corn hole.
“For so many of us without the big family around any more,” Lou Miliano posted on the event’s Facebook wall. “This was terrific. What a great idea to be with old friends and make so many new ones.”
