Christmas Lights!!! Norfolk Botanical Gardens Million Bulb Walk. This walk through lights event is for one week only before they open it to drive-through only. Check their website for details. Suggestion: Be there at 4:00 when it opens, preferably on a weeknight. Bring a tailgate dinner or walk the grounds until dark (which is usually by 5:00) The traffic gets awful and it can take you 1 hour+ just to get to park. Active duty and retirees receive a $1 discount (members only, not their family members) Note: Entrance to the park from the north is closed. You can only enter from Norfolk Airport side

As I stated in a previous post, adult co-ed social sports is pretty big in Hampton Roads. Especially kickball. I recommend joining WAKA personally (kickball.com/hamptonroads) but there are other good options as well. You can pretty much find a sports league playing every night of the week in each city.

It's a good weekend if you're a college sports fan, as the winter sports are winding down, and the spring sports are starting up.

There's a bunch of basketball going on this weekend, as their seasons are coming to an end soon. The Old Dominion University men hosts Charlotte this Saturday night at 7 pm. William & Mary women play the College of Charleston Friday at 7 pm. Virginia Wesleyan has a doubleheader Saturday at 2 pm; the women host Emory & Henry, followed by the men playing Randolph College. The Apprentice School Builders are scheduled to have a doubleheader against Virginia University of Lynchburg on Monday the 20th, the women tipoff at 5 pm, followed by the men at 7:30 pm.

By the way, for those you who want to get REALLY local, the high school basketball post season tournaments are in full swing right now. That high school down the road IS playing a very important game this week, trust me. Support your local high school!
Wednesday 8:50 p.m. UPDATE: High school basketball tournament pairings - Daily Press

The Old Dominion University wrestling squad will face off against Kent State Sunday the 19th at 1 pm at the Constant Center in Norfolk.

College baseball starts up in earnest this weekend, as it's the first weekend that the big schools can play. Old Dominion has a 3 game series against Long Island University--Brooklyn Friday, Saturday, and Sunday afternoon. Norfolk State hosts Villanova Friday, Saturday, and Sunday afternoon. Christopher Newport University has a full slate this weekend, hosting Hampden-Sydney on Thursday the 17th, then has a 3 game series against Ferrum College Friday, Saturday, and Sunday afternoon. And Apprentice School hosts Alfred State with a doubleheader on Saturday afternoon, followed by a single game on Sunday.

Softball also is going on despite the cool weather. Virginia Wesleyan plays a doubleheader against Susquehanna College Friday at noon. Norfolk State hosts Marist College in a doubleheader Saturday at noon. Christopher Newport plays a doubleheader against William Peace University Sunday at 1 pm.

Lacrosse is going on this weekend as well, as Hampton University's men's team starts their season against Roberts Wesleyan College Friday at 2 pm.

A final sporting event that's not tied to any of the schools in the area, Arena Racing USA will have their mini sports cars racing inside the Hampton Coliseum this Saturday night at 7 pm. Lots of LOUD fun, and you don't have to travel to Richmond or Charlotte to see motor racing!

For those people who aren't into sports (do they really exist? ), there are plenty of things to do this weekend.

By the way, both the Virginia Zoo and Nauticus are offering half-priced admissions for local residents until the end of February. Just show them proof that you are local and you're in! Well worth it if you are getting stir crazy sitting in the house during these cold days.

Anyway, get out there and ENJOY! Anyone who says there isn't anything to do in Hampton Roads is either lying or just too lazy to look!
