Per the Waveland Community Coalition FB page, the 2nd annual Oyster Fest has been cancelled due to city budget constraints. This seems short notice for a festival set for Saturday April 2nd.
The group posted the following message:
Regretfully, the WCC has to announce the cancellation of this year's OysterFest. The WCC's Board of Directors was informed, this morning by the city, that they could not afford to provide essential city services for the festival. Our sincerest "thanks" go out to all the sponsors, contributors, vendors and volunteers who gave of their time, talent and treasure. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Waveland-Community-Coalition/104533907743
We are disappointed to hear about this cancellation because it is such a wonderful and energetic festival.
