April 25, 2016: For Immediate Release




Contact: Faun Weaver; (727)


GULFPORT, FLORIDA: Who wants to represent all that is Gecko/Gulfport/Fabulous and be the next Gulfport Gecko Queen?  Gulfport’s fourth Gecko Queen will be crowned at this year’s Gecko Ball on Saturday, August 27th.  This is a gender-neutral opportunity for adults of any age, 21 and over; what's important is that you can represent Gulfport with flair!  Candidates who submitted an expression of interest in previous years are welcome to re-apply.  The Queen’s costuming should reflect this year’s theme of “20,000 Geckos Under the Sea,” so candidates should consider if this is a theme with which they can work.  The costumed Gecko Queen represents Gulfport throughout the year at events including GeckoFest and Gecko Crawl, St. Pete Pride Parade, Gulfport July 4th Parade and more.


The Queen will be chosen from among interested candidates by members of the Gecko Ball Committee.  The deadline to express your interest is June 17th.  If interested please contact Faun Weaver, Gecko Queen Emeritus, by email with a statement as to why you want to be the next Gecko Queen.  Please include any photos or video that represent you and your Gulfportian attitude!
