Halloween In Virginia Beach includes Virginia Symphony and Roller Derby

Barclay Cottage Bed and Breakfast still has rooms available for Halloween Weekend.

As usual, there's a lot happening in Virginia's Largest City......

Blue Moon Wicked 10K and Monster Mile



Run this wacky race in costume - or not...raise money for homeless families.  Fun time for all!   Saturday 10/30.  Race starts at 8:00 am at the VB Convention Center and finishes on the Boardwalk at 19th St.  Barclay Cottage B&B is only a short walk (run? jog?) away from both.

"ADULT" Halloween Party at Town Center


6-10 pm  party for big people with several bands, costume party, and Hallow-tini competition.   Dress-up, dress-down, come as you are (anyway can be pretty scary!)  Have a frightfully good time (cab or limo recommended) 

Military Aviation Museum Talk and Flight Demo



Saturday, Oct. 30 at 11:00 am, MGen Donald J Strait USAF (ret) WWII vet and Double Ace with 13.5 kills, will speak of his exploits followed immediately by a P-51 Flight Demo.   Come relive history with a true American Hero.   Watch the P-51 take-off, land, and perform in the air over the fields and forests of the Pungo section of Virginia Beach.
