Things To Do
Weekend Round-Up: Sept. 30-Oct. 2
It’s a new season, a new month is on the horizon and with that, a new editor for TidewaterParent.com — trying to bring you the best and timeliest parenting news and updates for the Hampton Roads/Tidewater area.
(In case you were wondering what the difference is, Hampton Roads = Chesapeake + Suffolk + Norfolk + Virginia Beach + Portsmouth; Tidewater = Chesapeake + Suffolk + Norfolk + Virginia Beach + Portsmouth + the Peninsula, or Hampton + Newport News.)
That being said, I have curated a short list of things you won’t want to miss this weekend. If you feel I left anything out, there is an events submission form on our website and we are always looking to engage the community. Let us know what’s going on!
This weekend, you won’t wanna miss …
