For the first time ever, the Gulfport Historical Society will make four-legged Gulfportians part of its annual birthday bash. On Saturday, October 12 at 10:30 a.m., every Gulfport dog is welcome to walk in the first annual historic doggy parade. Bring your best friend and let Gulfport historians photograph him or her for future generations.
This parade will be a fun celebration of our pets, and with Halloween just a few weeks away, pets and owners in and out of costume alike will be welcomed.
The walk costs nothing, although for a five dollar donation 35 participants can get a goody bag. A photographer will record the parade – and every subsequent one – so future generations can see Gulfport's dogs of today.
The Gulfport Historical Society seeks small donations for the goody bags. If you or your business has any pet (or human) related items for the goody bags, please contact Lynda Shehan at 323-2892 or Jovanna Hill at 327-9485.
