Gulfport is headed to the big screen
You might have noticed cameras and production crews filming around Gulfport this past weekend.
That’s because the City of Gulfport will soon be featured in a commercial that will air during a college football bowl game. The purpose is to show off the charm of southern cities and Gulfport was chosen along with Dallas, Texas, Fairhope, Alabama, Athens, Georgia, and Charlotte, North Carolina. Chris Vignes with City of Gulfport Public Affairs said, “This commercial is on national TV and will premiere during the college football bowl season and will highlight a lot of different areas on the Coast and a lot of familiar faces here in Gulfport. It’s pretty exciting. They were here for two days and visited restaurants and area attractions that will be seen on the big screen. We are pretty pumped.”
The commercial will premiere on EPSN during the bowl game on December 29th.
