GULFPORT, FLORIDA: Who wants to represent all that is Gecko Gulfport Fabulous and be the next Gecko Queen? 

Gulfport’s third Gecko Queen will be crowned at this year’s Gecko Ball on Saturday, August 29th.  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! The Queen’s costuming should reflect this year’s Mardi Gras theme, so candidates should consider if this is a theme with which they can work.  The 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 July 1st.  If interested please contact Faun Weaver, Gecko Queen Emeritus, at with a statement as to why you want to be the next Gecko Queen and include any photos or video that represent you and your Gulfportian attitude!
