The Shoofly is an online lifestyle magazine for Bay St. Louis and its sister city of Waveland, on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Our name comes from the iconic town landmark by the old City Hall (300 South Second Street). That raised "shoofly" deck, built around the trunk of a historic oak, is the perfect place for elevated community conversation. Curious to know more? Read our mission statement and history.
New issues are published the first week of every month, with happenings and breaking news published/updated several times weekly.
Here's our community mission:
To enhance enjoyment of life for residents of Bay St. Louis/Waveland
To introduce people from elsewhere to our unique Bay-Waveland community
To help our “expatriates” remain connected to our community
To showcase and support local businesses
To increase community pride and awareness
While we're "Bay-Centric," it's happily impossible to unravel our many ties to our sister cities of Waveland, Pass Christian and Diamondhead - so we celebrate those connections on a regular basis.
