This month, Waveland Alderman Jeremy Burke looks at the Red, White & You celebration, the reopening of the Garfield Ladner Pier and announces a new parade coming to town!
The festival will include carnival activities, vendors, "tons of free food, activities and games," live music by DJ Rod, Kerbside, Cheyenne and Category 6. Celebrity IMPACT Wrestling's Jeremy Borash, James Storm, Chris Melendez, and Taryn Terrel will also be on hand.
Get there early to claim your free July 4th Swag including commemorative Red, White & You Waveland Tees, Destination America Baseball Hats and more (while supplies last).
During the event, Destination America will present a donation to the Where Angels Play Foundation to help fund the construction of a playground that will be dedicated to the Bane family who lost their lives during Katrina. Click here for complete event details.
I look forward to seeing everyone at the beach on July 4th!
Open For Fishing!
The Garfield Ladner Memorial Pier, located at the foot of Terrace Avenue in Waveland, reopened to the public on Friday, June 19th. The pier, which was damaged in Hurricane Issac, has been closed since August 2012. Repair work finally began in January 2015 after many delays.
The pier will be open 24 hours and is free to the public. The 950 foot-long pier repaired by Coastal Marine Contractors is the latest addition to the city's beachfront, further enhancing Waveland's greatest asset.
New Parade Coming To Town!
Light Of The Fall is a new walking parade scheduled to take place down the beach path on the evening of Saturday, November 7th. The parade route stretches betweein Coleman Avenue to Washington Street. It is a walking or pedal-powered parade only. Every marching participant must be lit by some form of light.
This will be a sci-fi themed parade, similar to the parade legends from the The Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus. All trinkets and handouts must be handmade and original. Light of The Fall will post more information about how to participate, but for now just register your interest at our website. This will be a free membership to join the parade.
