Festival ready to turn Virginia Beach green

October 12, 2013 by  

The Lynnhaven River NOW Fall Festival will be taking place in Virginia Beach this October, and is considered to be part of the Virginia Beach Golden Anniversary Celebration.

A green festival, it is set to highlight environmentalism and raise funds to restore the Lynnhaven River. It will feature farmers and seafood markets and displays from groups such as the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, the Sierra Club and the Audubon Society. It will offer arts and crafts, exhibits from environmentally friendly businesses, and locally-grown food for purchase.

There will also be a variety of activities in which both children and adults can take part, including a treasure hunt, beach games, and a sandcastle contest. In addition, visitors to the festival can take guided nature walks in Beach Garden Park or paddleboard tours on Little Neck Creek.

The festival will help to educate the public on the importance of environmental sustainability, while providing plenty of fun activities for all. It will also be a place to pick up some healthy, locally grown food. In order to spread the word about this Virginia Beach festival, it is likely that organizers have invested in services such as flyer printing – which always offers an inexpensive way to get the word out about an event across a wide area.

The festival is being held at 31st on the beach on October 12 from 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm, and is free to attend. To learn more about the day’s events, call 757-962-5398.
