This is the celebration of America's largest, longest-running, free maritime festival in its 41st year, Norfolk Harborfest!
For three days, the historic waterfront festival offers a weekend packed with thrilling activities on land and sea to include tall ships and the Parade of Sail, artisan foods and beverages, work boat races, unique and unusual performances, one of the largest fireworks shows on the East Coast, family games and activities, national and regional entertainment, and much more.
If you make it out to the event, be sure to wave to the boats where you will find your favorite real estate agent in Hampton Roads hanging out with her family! I will be posting Photos on my FB page. My family looks forward to this all year!
This event has historically had the best fireworks display on the east coast annually. From my experience, there are actually more fireworks for this event than any of the local 4th of July displays. Tourists and boaters come from allover to participate in this event.
