      CITY OF GULFPORT 4TH OF JULY CELEBRATION CANCELLATION
       
      In an abundance of caution, the City of Gulfport has cancelled the annual 4th of July Celebration and respective event activities including the fireworks program, community parade, kids fishing derby, and sand sculpture contest. The 4th of July fireworks program is re-scheduled to Saturday, September 5, 2020 (Labor Day Weekend).
       
      “It’s one thing if policy decisions were being driven by economics to reopen; we understand that and support our businesses,” Gulfport Mayor Samuel Henderson said. “But as a city inviting people to gather in close quarters where it’s going to be very difficult to maintain social distancing, we were very uncomfortable inviting people to congregate that way.”
       
      All Special Events including the Tuesday Fresh Market and the monthly first Friday and third Saturday Artwalks are cancelled until further notice. The Gulfport Casino’s public events remain closed.
       
      The City of Gulfport will continue to closely monitor COVID-19 and an ongoing evaluation will take place on the events closure. For more information, please call (727) 893-1000.
