Beat the heat: Families enjoy outdoor activities in Norfolk city center

High temperatures and humidity remained top of mind for people strolling Hampton Roads on Saturday.

NORFOLK, Va. – Temperatures, at their peak, were in the upper 90s on Saturday afternoon.

However, the unusual heat this weekend didn’t stop families and friends from having a great time at Town Point Park in Norfolk city centre.

“The weather, it’s a little warm but every once in a while you get some cloud cover, but it’s nice,” said party girl Tracy Jeter.

An ode to New Orleans, Bayou Bon Vivant is a celebration filled with food, music, art and activities for all to enjoy.

“Everyone have fun, have fun and be safe,” Jeter added.

The organizers had to cancel the festivities on Saturday evening “due to the instability of the weather”. They said all Saturday tickets will be honored on Sunday, May 22. The festival will run from noon to 6 p.m.

If the beach is your scene, Oceanfront families also tried to beat the heat. Virginia Beach Lifeguard Service Chief Tom Gill shared a message for those spending time outdoors.

“Like every time you come to the beach or every time you go to that sport with all the kids, you have a cooler with all those healthy snacks, lots of water, take care of your skin,” he said. .
