The Parks Zeigler Guide to Harborfest!
This weekend marks the return of Norfolk’s Harborfest. Since there are so many fun things to do and see at this year's festival, we wanted to let you know what we are most excited about this weekend.
Festival Escape Room
The Escape Room challenge is fun for both friends and family. It’s a team-oriented activity that requires problem-solving skills, creativity, and good communication in order to escape the room your team is in! Escape room games have become more popular recently and this is a great opportunity to experience it yourself.
Virginia Wine, Spirits, and Craft Beer Garden
This is a wonderful way to explore a diverse variety of what Virginia has to offer when it comes to beer, wine, and spirits. Stop by their location near The Back Deck Stage along the Elizabeth River as the sun goes down to experience a great start to your evening.
Harborfest Drone Show
Drones will take to the sky at 9:30 PM on Friday for a unique hi-tech performance that will “display the highest quality imagery, data and cutting edge UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) technology synchronized to a nautical musical playlist.” This drone performance is a first for Harborfest and the region.
Ultimate Build-a-Boat Challenge
On Saturday, competing teams will attempt to build a custom boat from scratch, and on Sunday the boats will be put to the test in a race on the water. This is a fun way to see people's creativity and engineering at work!
As always, there will be no shortage of delicious food to sample and enjoy over the weekend. We’re especially looking forward to the oysters and crab cakes.
