Holiday activities in Hampton Roads will kick off Saturday with the 24th Annual Holidays in the City Grand Illumination Parade.
The parade, expected to draw a crowd of 100,000, will begin at 7 p.m. after the synchronized countdown that will signal the grand illumination that outlines the Norfolk’s and Portsmouth’s downtown skylines, according to the City of Norfolk’s Web site.
The parade route begins at the corner of St. Paul’s Boulevard and stretches to Waterside Drive to Plume Street and then to Granby Street and ending at Virginia Beach Boulevard, according to the city.
From 3 to 5 p.m., parking will cost $1 at all downtown city-owned parking facilities with attendants, the site says. The Scope garage and Brambleton and St. Paul’s lots are exceptions. The lots at Harbor Park and Harrison Opera House will be closed the public all day Saturday.
