Neptune Rules in VA

By Linda Tancs

The beaches at Virginia Beach in Virginia are wide–quite fitting for an imposing colossal bronze statue of the sea god Neptune to reign over.  Summer may be coming to a close, but Neptune rules at the festival this weekend all across the oceanfront.  The annual event covers everything from a world-class sandcastle competition to numerous athletic competitions and the famous Neptune Grand Parade. Over 275 artisans will line the boardwalk for the Neptune Art and Craft Show, combined with food vendors and lots of oceanside fun.  Dive right in.  


Illuminations in Virginia

By Linda Tancs

What do the cities of Richmond, Williamsburg, Newport News, Hampton, Portsmouth, Norfolk and Virginia Beach have in common? Besides their location along Route 64 in the Commonwealth of Virginia, these cities play host to the award-winning 100 Miles of Lights extravaganza. Now through early January, take advantage of the events in these host cities celebrating the season. Choose from several activities such as the drive-through lights display in Newport News, the Grand Illumination in colonial Williamsburg or the dinner cruises in Norfolk or Portsmouth highlighting the festooned waterfront. There’s no need to vote for favorites. Whatever the outcome, the “eyes” have it.
