New Life at the Gulfport Museum | Arts & Culture
Guflport, Florida -- This is not your mother’s history museum.
Last Saturday event, the Gulfport Historical Society hosted its first-ever fundraising dinner, Gulfport Under the Stars, on the grounds of the Gulfport History Museum. As part of the board’s effort to renew interest in the museum and the Society, the Society took its annual birthday celebration in a new direction by adding an evening event.
The daytime celebration still included cake, popcorn, and the mullet toss, but the Society added an “historical” dog parade and the crowning of Gulfport’s first-ever Mullet King.
