City of Waveland hosts inaugural Labor Day Street Fair

The City of Waveland wanted to close out the summer with a bang with their inaugural Labor Day Street Fair.

The fair hosted more than 30 vendors with a combination of artists and food trucks. The event was a way to encourage people to visit the area to see what the City of Waveland has to offer when it comes to local businesses.

Shoppers listened to three bands and a DJ perform while visiting booths. The day ended with a big firework show at Garfield Ladner Pier.

Event organizers tell News 25 the response has been overwhelming and they hope to see an even bigger crowd next year. Event Organizer Lonnie Falgout said, “We show that this community is unique. We’ve been cooped up long enough. Explore. It’s the weekend. It’s Labor Day Weekend. So, let’s not labor, let’s come have fun.”

City of Waveland Alderman Bobby Richardson said, “As I said, getting people out and making it an every year event so we can bring revitalization back to Waveland.”
