History

The Pink Flamingo Tour of Homes began in the 90’s and continues to be the biggest fundraiser for the Gulfport Area Chamber of Commerce. Since becoming an annual event, the tour is always held on the first Saturday in March. In an effort to keep the tour short enough for our walkers and bikers, the tour is done geographically by focusing on one area of the City each year. Trolley and bus service will be provided free for those who are unable to walk the route.

Each year, we strive to seek out the best homes to represent our wonderful City. We try very hard to find a mixture of homes, which highlight the eclectic nature of Gulfport. Homes may be selected because they are very small, very large, very colorful, absolutely gorgeous, original, newly renovated, or just “out there”. It is an honor to be invited to participate on the tour.

Tour goers walk at their own pace and may visit the homes in any order.  The tour can take anywhere between 2-4 hours depending on your pace. All visitors will be provided with a tour book containing a map which will show the scheduled trolley stops and the homes open for viewing. Some of our advertisers will also be offering “specials” for the day, so be sure to check out the ads in the tour book.

We could not do this tour without the help of our long term sponsors.  A big thank you to the City of Gulfport, the Gabber, Tropical Focus Photography, and Olympus Printing!
