St Patrick's Parade
February was the month of the Nereids mermaids and March is the month that the Waveland Civic Association parades on the streets of Waveland. On Saturday, March 11th at 2:00 pm, the Waveland Civic Association’s St. Patrick’s Day parade will roll down Coleman Avenue for the 53rd time since it was established in 1964. The parade will include regionally famous Krewe of Shamrockers, The Queens, and the Raw Oyster Marching Club.
Hope to see everyone lined up on Central Avenue and Coleman Avenue ready to catch beads, cups and cabbage!
What's Up, Waveland

The following is a message from Mayor Mike Smith:
I am really excited to announce this cleanup day in the City of Waveland. Highway 90 is the focus area for this effort and will include picking up litter, grass cutting, planting and the business owners/property owners that participate will be asked to address issues at their property with the help of volunteers.
Issues include things such as signs, painting and items that are in need of repair. Involved parties will include Public Works, Litter Department Community Service, Keep Waveland Beautiful and Team Waste. Highway 90 is the gateway to the city and should look more attractive for visitors. If you are interested in helping please contact city hall. The date is March 24th. beginning at 8:00 am.
It was approved in February that the Central Fire Station on Highway 90 will be dedicated and named “David A. Garcia Central Fire Station” to honor former Chief and Mayor David Garcia for his many years of dedication and service to the city of Waveland.
Waveland changed the city's property insurance to Betz, Rosetti, & Associates, Inc. and was able to lower our premium by 17%.
