Are you considering Virginia for the first time, or are you a longtime admirer of this commonwealth? It does not matter because you will enjoy up close and personal all of the different ways Virginia is truly for lovers.
You can choose to wash the cares of the day away along the Eastern Shores of the beach. Or, you can choose to party the night away with the crowd at Virginia Beachâs nightlife.
If you are looking for something more family friendly, theme parks and water parks are open every day of the week.
However, if you are planning to attend during the autumn, there are some events to keep in mind during your weekend getaway or your planned vacation.
Patrick County Agricultural Fair
Located in Stuart, Virginia, this fair is held during the last two weeks of September and is stationed at the Stuart Rotary Field. It opens every evening at 5:30 pm and closes at 10:30 pm. There is wonderful entertainment every night like:
â¢ Miss Patrick County Beauty Pageant
â¢ Four-Wheeler Mud Bogging
â¢ Youth livestock shows
â¢ Demolition Derby
The fair is wheelchair accessible, and the price of admission for adults is $5. The admission price for children is $3.
Hampton Cup Regatta
This two-day event is held in September in Hampton, Virginia. 2017 marks 91 years the Annual Hampton Cup Regatta has taken place.
Join 20,000 other spectators for a weekend that is full of chills, thrills and racing excitement in the water. Take some time to view the boats up close as well as meet the pit crew and drivers.
On both days the racing begins at noon and does not end until 5 pm. Even if you arrive early, it is best to bring a lawn chair with you because the bleacher seating is very limited.
Also keep in mind that pets, skateboards, coolers and bikes are not allowed at the event.
These are only two of the many fall events you can enjoy in Virginia. Chances are after your first visit, you will add Virginia to the top of your vacation destination list.
