2009 Norfolk Harborfest®
Parade of Sail to kick-off
Three-day Holiday Weekend Spectacular
July 3-5, on the Downtown Norfolk Waterfront 

Tall Ships Parade scheduled to sail into the Norfolk Harbor at Noon on July 3!


NORFOLK, Va. – (March 6, 2009) –Norfolk Festevents, Ltd. has announced that the

33rd Annual Norfolk Harborfest ® Parade of Sail will kick-off a spectacular weekend on the Downtown Norfolk Waterfront.  Three exciting events, the Grand Opening of Norfolk’s newly renovated Town Point Park, 2009 Norfolk Harborfest®, and the 27th Annual 4th of July Great American Picnic and Fireworks will be rolled into one weekend filled with three days of electrifying fireworks displays, 3 days of explosive entertainment, and the biggest dock party in Hampton Roads. 

At “high noon” on Friday, July 3, Norfolk will welcome the Parade of Sail as it enters the Downtown Norfolk Harbor.  Following tradition, an expansive fleet of tall ships, character vessels, sleek power cruisers, sailing craft, antique and classic wooden boats, Chesapeake Bay workboats, military vessels, tugs and more, will salute thousands of onlookers stationed at vantage points along the Elizabeth River – the larger portion of the crowd expected to be viewing from Town Point Park, which will officially reopen July 4th weekend after closing in October 2008 for a complete makeover.
