Every Labor Day weekend, the Home Show makes its way to Tampa Bay, offering every conceivable option for home remodels, repairs, and design. Whether you’re DIYing or looking for professional services and products, it’s all right here for three days. No wonder they need the whole Expo Hall to hold it all! I must admit, home shows are a definite weakness, so I’ll see you there.

Friday, September 1st – Sunday, September 3rd

**Registry Spotlight Event**

Downtown Gulfport took a hit with flooding during Hurricane Idalia, but if I know my neighborhood, they’ll rise to the occasion! Here’s hoping the waters recede and Geckofest goes on as planned. Either way, it deserves the spotlight this week.

GECKOFEST – Gulfport’s End of Summer Celebration
Beach Blvd S, Gulfport

Historic Waterfront District, Gulfport

It’s a premiere annual event for the little city that could. Gulfport hosts this huge, day-long celebration marking the end of the Summer – or the hopeful end, in any case, and honors its unofficial mascot – the gecko. Everyone is encouraged to dress-up, so you’ll see a wide array of costumes, and experience lots of music, dancing, food, and drink. This year’s theme – Around the World in 80 Geckos is sure to raise the costume inspiration factor. Come on down! Admission is free and the event is pet-friendly.

Saturday, September 2nd @10am – 10pm

St. Pete Jewelry, Gem, and Mineral Show
