Waveland took another step to finally have a restroom facility on the beachfront. Currently, Waveland is seeking bids to construct the much-talked-about Waveland lighthouse, public pavilion, and restroom project.
This project has been in the works for years, and hopefully will be completed by the summer of 2018. Waveland has been saving Tideland funds, which they receive annually from DMR, for several years and recently the Hancock County Board of Supervisors offered a $300,000 grant that they received to help fund the project. The bid opening for this project will take place just prior to the May 17 Board meeting.
What's Up, Waveland?
The festival features food, carnival rides, craft vendors, and the best free Memorial Day weekend live entertainment anywhere on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. On Friday evening, Category 6 will be performing; Saturday evening, Forest Tradition will be performing; and Got Groove will be closing out the festival on Sunday evening. There is also classic car show starting at 8 a.m. on Saturday on the church grounds.
In addition to the festival, the 5th annual St. Clare Seafood Festival 5K race will take place on the Waveland boardwalk on Saturday, May 27, at 8 a.m. See run/walk registration details here .
Please make plans to have a good time while supporting St. Clare this Memorial Day weekend.
