Upcoming Events in Waveland
On March 14th the Waveland Civic Association’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade will roll down Coleman Avenue. The 2015 WCA St. Patrick’s Day will be the 51st time the Waveland Civic Association has paraded in Waveland the Saturday before St. Patrick’s Day. The parade will also include the new hit marching club, The Raw Oysters.
Hope to see everyone lined up on Central Avenue and Coleman Avenue ready to catch beads, cups and cabbage.
Featured this year will be historic buildings which were in existence in 1938 when the Garden Club was officially organized along with a number of other beautiful properties in Bay St Louis and Waveland. Come down to the Waveland Civic Center to pick up your pilgrimage map and have fun on March 21st admiring the charm of Hancock County.
What Is That?
If you have driven by Elwood Bourgeois Park, you may have noticed a dying oak tree as it evolved into a piece of art. The Waveland Civic Association commissioned tree sculptor James Seal to carve the oak tree into a softball player. The tree was carved not only to add beauty to the park, but also to commemorate the recently deceased Waveland Civic Association member and longtime Waveland youth sport supportor, Herb Sires.
