It is the annual tradition that almost wasn't. The Gulfport Springfest Street Festival, which city officials canceled last year to streamline the budget, will go on this Saturday from noon to 8 p.m. along Beach Boulevard in the heart of the city's downtown. Arts and crafts merchants, along with local restaurants and food vendors, will line the street. The festival also includes live entertainment. The Gulfport Chamber of Commerce helped resurrect the festival this year after offering to help cover its tab. Information: Gulfport Chamber of Commerce at 344-3711 or visit gulfportchamberofcommerce.com.
