Posted on Oct 03, 2019

Let's Get LocalOctober is here and it looks like the weekend will bring some cooler weather! We’re back with our weekly Let’s Get Local installment and we’re excited to get out and about over the next few days. Take a look at what’s in store!

Virginia Children’s Festival: Saturday, October 5th at Town Point Park in Norfolk; 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM
Bring the kids out to experience a festival created just for them. This year’s theme is “Under The Sea,” and the event will be organized into different aquatic-themed zones with interactive and creative activities throughout. Storytelling, educational displays, arts & crafts, and cultural experienced are all in store. They’ll learn a lot and have a great time. 

Bi-Planes and Brews Airshow: October 5th – 6th at the Military Aviation Museum; 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM
This event combines a variety of delicious craft beers with the spectacle and educational experience of WWI era airplanes. Attendees can enjoy regional craft beers along with “historic biplanes and triplanes soar overhead with live vintage musical performances filling the air.” You can even take a ride in an open cockpit bi-plane if you’re up for it!  

Dual Axes Mobile Ax Throwing at O’Connor Brewing Co.: October 4th; 3:00 PM – 9:00 PM
We can’t think of a more effective way to blow off the week’s steam with a couple of beers and ax throwing. Stop by O’Connor Brewing Co. after work on Friday and have a throw! There will be a food truck on-site as well.

Norfolk’s “First Fridays”: October 4th in downtown Norfolk; 5:00 PM – 8:30 PM
If you’re looking for something a little less aggressive than ax throwing, you can enjoy this weekend’s “First Fridays” event in downtown Norfolk that happens at the 300 block of Granby Street. Drinks, food, fun, and live music from Greyhounds.

Family Fest: October  6th at the MOCA in Virginia Beach; 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Bring the whole family to the Museum of Contemporary Art for a few hours of creation, exploration, and connection with art. Attendees can check out the current exhibitions on display, and experience live demos. Admission is free.  

As always, be safe and have fun!
