Waveland alderman Jeremy Burke updates us on Waveland's Halloween bash, Veteran's Day parade, Hurricane Laura relief efforts, and the next Food Truck Friday event.
The goals of the organizers are to ensure that this is a safe environment and a safe event for everyone attending. Attendees of the Halloween Bash are expected to wear a face mask. The people handing out treats will set out individual candy pieces or put small toys on a table for a contact-free trick or treat. The city of Waveland will control the flow of people to allow social distancing practices.
Waveland Veterans Events
The City of Waveland will host a Veteran’s Parade on Sunday, November 8, 2020, at 2 pm along Coleman Avenue. We are inviting veterans of the Bay/Waveland and Hancock County areas to participate by riding in the parade. We are also inviting any groups who would like to participate by marching in the parade, or individuals or businesses interested in sponsoring the event. Most of all, we want our community members to join together in honoring these veterans by attending the parade.
For many years, brave men and women have served our country, making many sacrifices to protect our freedoms, and we want to honor and celebrate these veterans for their service. The reason the parade is on a Sunday is that we want all youth members of our community to have an opportunity to not only participate or attend the parade but to learn civic pride. We hope that they will be the members of the community who will carry on this tradition.
Please download forms here for Veteran participants, volunteers and parade participants. The deadline for submitting the form is Friday, November 1, 2020. If you have any questions please contact email@example.com, or call (228) 209-7399.
We look forward to honoring the brave men and women of our community.
