11th Annual Gulfport's Get Rescued
Gulfport's Get Rescued In Gulfport
(Daytime Street Event)
Gulfport’s Get Rescued, the animal rescue festival and fundraiser, is preparing for its 11th annual event to take place on Saturday, February 28th, 2015 from 10AM to 6PM.
This popular street festival, which Gulfport Merchant's Association (GMA) hosts, has evolved from one block and a handful of animal rescue groups in its first year to a popular and festive event representing as many as 60 animal rescue groups from throughout the region.
Gulfport's Get Rescued is one of the largest such events in the state, with all profits to benefit participating non-profit rescue groups.
Animal rescue organizations, many appearing with adoptable pets, take over Beach Blvd. to raise money and awareness for their causes. Additionally, animal-related vendors, artists and crafters offer their wares to festival-goers.
Pet Related activities will include a pet parade (Bring your rescues and showcase them in the parade!), pet care education, pet services, a pet food and supplies drive, adoptable pets, free samples, training demos, food, music & games.
Each year, thousands of attendees, many accompanied by their own canine companions, make their way to Gulfport to support what has become a beloved tradition.
