GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

Gulfport's first Harbor Lights Winter Festival lived up to the city's expectations. More than 5,000 people showed up over the weekend to view the huge holiday display at Jones Park.

City spokesman Chris Vignes said that's a good turnout considering it was the weekend after Thanksgiving and many families were traveling.

The city expects even larger crowds this upcoming weekend with the arrival of Santa's Village.
