The 2012 Ocean Park Fall Festival and Art Show is October 6th from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. The Festival is sponsored by and benefits the Ocean Park Volunteer Rescue Squad. The event is an effort to bring residents together for a day of fun with the added benefit of raising awareness of issues to the local community and various neighborhoods along Shore Drive.
The Fall Festival will feature an outdoor art show, live entertainment, a craft show inside the Rescue Squad building, children’s activities, a Bounce House, displays of Rescue Squad equipment, and a fully restored vintage Virginia Beach Ambulance.
Located along Shore Drive, the venue includes Rescue One, Lynnhaven Marine and Capt. Max King’s (formerly Browning’s Marine). Local residents are encouraged to walk to the event, however there is parking at Max Kings, Lynnhaven Marine and neighborhood streets.
Three live performances beginning at 10:00 am, featuring entertainment by Stan Howard aka The Sax Man, Joe Maniscalco and Grant Austin Taylor.
The event organizers hope to make this an annual event that raises funds to support the Rescue Squad. This is also an opportunity to chat with members of local groups that volunteer their time to enhance the community. Many of our residents are members of The Shore Drive Community Coalition, Bayfront Advisory Committee, Lynnhaven River Now, Pleasure House Point and the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. Mark your calendar now that, plan to spend a few hours or the entire day with free entertainment, discussion of important local issues, and having some fun with your neighbors!
