There's a lot going on this weekend as part of the second annual "Heroes Weekend" events in Gulfport! But make sure to mark your calendar for the helicopter aerial photos at Gulfport Beach on Sunday around 3:15 p.m.
Hundreds are needed for the photo! City Council Member Dan Liedtke helped organize the helicopter photos with Boatpix.com and says they'll need 25 to 35 people per letter. Organizers are hoping to spell out GULFPORT, FL with a human chain . . . that means between 250 and 350 people are needed!
The aerial photos will be taken immediately following the VETSports vs Gulfport Police & Fire Inaugural Beach Volleyball Benefit on Sunday. The match begins at 1 p.m. The flyover by BoatPix.com is expected between 3:15 and 3:30 p.m.
Members of the Gulfport Teen Council will draw out GULFPORT, FL in the sand and from there all you have to do is pick a spot, hold your neighbors hand . . . and say CHEESE!
The photo will be used for future marketing campaigns for the City of Gulfport.
