There are so many more activities going on in our cities that I can't begin to try to post them all. For a complete listing of all types of events, functions, shows, museums/galleries, etc. I'd strongly recommend purchasing the Thursday edition of the Virginian-Pilot. There is a weekly feature called PULSE that contains all this information and so very much more.

I had no idea we have so many activities. I think I'm going to do some exploring and visiting....right here in Hampton Roads!
