Harborfest is an annual event that takes place on the Oceanfront (Towne Point Park) of Norfolk, VA.  Events include Live music from local bands, nationally known bands and other acts (comedy etc).  Food is in abundance (seafood, corn, turkey legs, lemonade, smoothies, Indian Fry Bread... the works); artisans show their wares (jewelry, sea art, paintings, T-shirts all the standards) booths of local businesses (radio stations and tourism etc), sea cruises (Pirate Cruise, Spirit of Norfolk etc), Tug Boat shows, Parade of ships/boats, fireworks, face painting and people watching... This event flows right into the boardwalk boardwalk mall  where it begins to the  Nauticus Museum, where it ends.  All events are FREE but you'll need plenty of money to shop and eat!  Bring good walking shoes, sunscreen, sunglasses, a hat, and plenty of water to drink.

 Harborfest Norfolk, VA

 

This is the second time we've been to Harborfest.  Nothing more here than last time.  Food  was expensive (3.00 for Cotton Candy, 3.00 for a can of Diet Pepsi; 5.00 for French Fries etc.) We did take more photos.  This year, we saw the Commodores.  We did not stop for autographs.
