Waveland Alderman Jeremy Burke shares information about the exciting Destination Waveland event Labor Day weekend, the next Food Truck Friday, and lots of upcoming events in the fall.

Lindsey Taylor's exhibit uses photography, informational narrative, and interactive exhibit to engage visitors as they adventure through the amazing world of trees and how they are studied.
You can also check out her featured interactive cookie sculpture, which uses data submitted by guests, translated as string, to continue building the sculpture. This unique piece essentially tells guests “how big you would be if you were a tree.”
Lindsey will be continuously posting updates on the process of the sculpture on her Instagram, @lindseytaylordesigns, and on her website, http://www.lindseytaylordesigns.com, as well as on WGZM’s Instagram, @WavelandGZM.
As part of the Talkative Trees exhibit, Lindsey Taylor Henriques herself will be at the museum on select days (with homemade cookies) to give visitors a special walkthrough of the exhibit.
This is another exhibit not to miss! It runs during regular museum hours: Tuesday-Saturday, 10 am-3 pm, through August 27.
For more information please visit the Waveland Ground Zero Museum.

Upcoming events on Coleman Avenue
Over the last several years, Coleman Avenue has become a premier venue for local festivals. Over the next few months, Coleman Avenue will be active with several special events.
The City of Waveland will host the Labor Day Street Fair and Fireworks on Sunday, September 4 (the Sunday of Labor Day weekend) on Coleman Avenue from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. For more details on this event, please contact email@example.com.
The second annual White Linen On Coleman event will be held on September 24, from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm. This event benefits Friends of the Animal Shelter in Hancock County. White Linen On Coleman features excellent local artists, food, and music. This is a first-class event. If this year’s event is anything like the inaugural event, I promise you will have a great time. This is a kid-friendly event. For more details, please visit Second Annual White Linen On Coleman Facebook page.
October 15 is the date for the inaugural Coleman Avenue Fall Fest event. This one-day event will feature artists, food, music and much more, providing the Waveland community with a fun, safe, family event. For more information about this event, please see the Coleman Avenue Fall Fest Facebook page.
Waveland Food Truck Friday
I hope to see everyone on Coleman Avenue on Friday, August 12, from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm for Waveland Food Truck Friday. Traffic on Coleman Avenue will be closed in front of Studio Waveland to accommodate the food trucks and allow you to set up a canopy tent, table, and chairs if you choose.
