Let Loose With a Night of Monster Trucks at Monsters on the Beach

May 5, 2016 12:01 pm

Are you a fan of monster trucks? If so, then you'll love spending the day letting loose at Monsters on the Beach, a very popular annual event that is presented by Pungo Off Road. This year's Monsters on the Beach will take place from May 6 to May 8 on the beach between 5th and 7th Streets, and tickets are just $13.50 per person if you purchase before the day of the event.

During Monsters on the Beach, giant monster trucks will battle one another to dominate the beach right in the middle of the sand. Although it's very loud and crazy, the entire event is family-friendly and appropriate for people of all ages. Take a seat in the bleachers overlooking the sand dunes and settle in for the two-hour long show!

Keep Your Peepers Peeled for Colorful Eggs at the Annual Eggstravaganza Easter Egg Hunt

March 23, 2016 2:30 pm

It's that time of year again! The Easter holiday is almost upon us, and that means the return of the annual Eggstravaganza Easter egg hunt. People of all ages are invited to join in the festivities at this fun and exciting event taking place near Northwest.

This year's Eggstravaganza will be held on Saturday, March 26 at the Chesapeake City Park from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Egg hunts will be divided into two age groups for children 4 and under and for children 5 through 8, making it easier for little ones (and their parents) to gather eggs with children their own age. Participants are encouraged to bring their own Easter baskets for the hunt, and once all of the eggs are gathered, they can even have their photos taken with Peter Cottontail himself!

Eggstravaganza
March 26, 2016 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
