Your Funky, Surfing, Tunnel Racing Hampton Roads Weekend

The surf’s up at the Oceanfront, there’s a ton of great art in Portsmouth, and let’s not forget the beer that’ll be flowing in Chesapeake! With Labor Day weekend almost upon us this is one of the final weekends of summer so get out there and enjoy Hampton Roads.

Don’t forget that there’s still time to help WAVY and hrScene get kids ready with Operation School Supplies.

See anything we missed? We want to know about it! Send us an email: info@hrscene.com.
