Numerous styles of dancing and music were present in Gulfport's bash to finish 2010.
The Gulfport Casino opened its doors New Year's Eve for people young and old to dance and celebrate the passing of 2010. The band Identity Crisis played hits from many different eras and genres. To kick off the night, a nightclub style ballroom dance lesson was given by Carol Baker so everyone would know some moves to dance the night away. In between the dancing, guests were treated to some more elaborate dance presentations of different styles of dance, including a waltz, a pasa doble and a samba. A silent auction was also held throughout the night with proceeds benefitting the new City of Imagination in Gulfport.

Gulfport is the place to be when 2010 ends and 2011 begins.
The big ball is about to drop and ring in 2011 but that doesn't mean that the only celebrations are happening up in New York. Some of the not-to-miss parties are happening in downtown Gulfport. Here are three fun ways to get out and ring in the new year by the water in Gulfport. These are just a few of the wild ways to watch the ball drop this year in Gulfport. With lots of ways to celebrate, there's no reason not to hit up Gulfport this New Year's and party hard (and stay safe)!
