Gulfport’s 16th Annual Pink Flamingo Tour of Gardens
Gulfport’s Pink Flamingo Tour returns Covid-ready with an all-outdoor garden tour. Visitors will have the opportunity to see everything from a rain garden to edible landscapes, and lots of chickens.
The past year of pandemic distancing has been hard on everyone but perhaps has hit Gulfportians harder than most. The tiny community of fun-loving, artistic, recovering hippies likes nothing better than inviting the world to enjoy its fun, artistic, hip events. So having to retreat to our separate worlds has made us all a little blue.
But it’s almost spring again, and the haven by the bay joyously invites the world back to rediscover Gulfport during the 16th annual Pink Flamingo Tour of Gardens on Saturday, March 6, 11 am – 5 pm.
In a twist on the annual home tour, this year we’re throwing a Covid-ready, all-outdoor event. Visitors will have the opportunity to see everything from an under-construction rain garden to a manicured backyard art gallery to meditation spaces, edible landscapes, and chickens, chickens, chickens.
Feel free to see properties in any order. Parking is limited, so we ask visitors to bike, scoot, or carpool. Sorry, no pets.
Tickets are $10 in advance at Gulfport Beach Bazaar or pinkflamingohometour.com, $15 at the door. Registration will take place at the Gulfport Rec Center, 5730 Shore Blvd., where you’ll receive a map and wristband.
The Pink Flamingo Tour of Gardens is a fundraiser for the Gulfport Merchants Chamber. Like all Chamber-sponsored events, the tour adheres to Gulfport STRONG, a heightened safety awareness campaign that assures CDC protocols including masking, social distancing, and hand sanitizing are met or exceeded.
