The seven cities have so much going on. Whether it is Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake, Newport News, Hampton, Portsmouth, or Suffolk there is always something fun to do. Check out our suggestions for this weekend - September 11-12.
HAMPTON BAY DAYS
Taking place for the 28th year during Hampton's 400th anniversary, Hampton Bay Days will feature more than 35 musical groups, including classic rock, reggae, country, alternative, jazz and R&B, on three outdoor stages. Headlining the event are the Fabulous Thunderbirds on Friday, George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic on Saturday and Joe Nichols on Sunday. Renowned artist Wyland will make a special guest appearance Saturday.
NEPTUNE'S WINE FEST
Celebrate the Virginia vine and King Neptune at the same time with Neptunes's Fall Wine Festival Saturday and Sunday at 31st Street Park. The fest brings in plenty of Virginia varieties for everyone to imbibe. Live music, gourmet foods and specialty vendors also will be included in the experience.
KINGS OF LEON
The Tennessee-bred alternative rock band Kings of Leon stops in Virginia Beach this Saturday. It's pretty good timing for fans too. The band just released (on Wednesday) the video for the single "Radioactive" via their website, KingsofLeon.com. The concert also features two not-to-miss opening acts - The Black Keys and The Whigs. Who isn't ready to rock out?!
BLUES AT THE BEACH FESTIVAL
It's a blue, blue, blue weekend as the Oceanfront also hosts the annual Blues at the Beach festival Friday through Sunday. This year see Jimmy Hall & Friends, Shaun Murphy (of Little Feat), Zac Harmon, Billy Price, Terry "Harmonica" Bean, Mike Zito, Lil' Ray Neal, Charles "Big Daddy" Stallings, Jackie Scott & The Housewreckers, Freeborn Blues Band and The HRB Band.
The festival season is upon us. Let us know what you are doing.
