This Weekend: First Landing Festival

This is a great weekend to check out First Landing State Park. Not only is the weather looking good, but the park will be home to the First Landing Festivals Historic Reenactment and Celebration.

The celebration, this Saturday and Sunday March 26th and 27th, focuses on our country’s history and origins. Specifically, the landing at Cape Henry by Reverend Robert Hunt and the settlers of Jamestown. The recent recovery of artifacts and remains at the Jamestown site allows us to know more than ever about the early settlers’ lives. The Wolf Creek Cherokee Tribe of Virginia will also be present to perform an interpretive  traditional dance in full regalia and discuss local Indian history.

But it’s not just history!

There’s a lot of family fun for your kids, including:

  • Bouncy House amusements for children
  • Commercial Gift Vendors
  • Live entertainment
  • Live reenactment
  • Food vendor
  • Crafts for children
  • Games and prizes
  • Easter Egg Hunt (2:30 p.m. Sunday)
