Your Fall Wine Fest, Race for the Cure Hampton Roads Weekend

Hurricane Matthew came last weekend and cancelled MANY events; we hope everyone stayed safe. So take this weekend to get out and enjoy the events going on around the area after being cooped up inside.

There are a few charity walk/runs going on, including the 2016 Race for the Cure at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront’s Neptune Park. You can help the fight against Breast Cancer and meet WAVY News 10 Anchor Stephanie Harris and Face of FOX43 Annaka Chesnutt.
