The Annual Wine Festival was another hit. Norfolk really out does its self. From all the open tents to the low cost of garage parking. I wish Va Beach would take a lesson on how to run Festivals. In Va Beach they jack up the cost of parking or leave it at the usual high cost. Norfolk made a flat... More

What a nice clean park that is close to everything! You can easily walk to many attractions from here. Right along the river with benches to just sit & relax and watch the many boats in the water!

The dancers were entertaining . The performances on the big stage kept the Caribbean vibe going .... More

Where are water fountains and restrooms? Probably a nice venue when it is cooler. Views were pretty and the green space is clean.

Town Point Park is a beautiful Waterfront space in downtown Norfolk. In 2016 they hosted perhaps the most picturesque Gay Pride Celebration in the United States.
