What Matthew Hasn’t Cancelled Hampton Roads Weekend

Good news, bad news time. The good news, it looks like Hampton Roads and the Outer Banks are out of Hurricane Matthew’s direct path. The bad news, many events around the area were already postponed or cancelled in advance.

Check here for the full cancellation list.

There are still some great events going on around the area. There are not much, but we went ahead and found a few we think the whole family will enjoy.

Do you know of an event that didn’t get cancelled? Send us an email: info@hrscene.com and we’ll add to the calendar.
