    Have you hiked Roaring Run Trail in Eagle Rock, #VA? An excellent family #hike, the trail passes rock walls, cascading water, five foot bridges and even a natural water slide before ending at Roaring Run Falls. At the head of the trail is Roaring Run Furnace, ruins of a 19th century furnace operation. Roaring Run #Creek is also known for trout fishing. #VAOutdoors #waterfall #loveva #repost #roaringrun #virginia #perspective #photooftheday Kudos to @spezzaroo for the beautiful photo!

    Virginia’s Grand Illuminations

    by Casey | Posted on November 13th, 2012

    Twinkles and animated lights bring out the kid in all of us, so take time to make a memory with your children and loved ones. Virginia’s illuminations will indeed be a hit with young and old alike.

    Downtown Norfolk Skyline

    The festivities begin this Saturday, November 17 with the illumination of the downtown Norfolk and Olde Towne Portsmouth skylines followed by Hampton Roads’ most cherished event, the Grand Illumination Parade. Festive floats, marching bands, giant balloons, dancers and Santa himself will delight spectators as they parade through downtown Norfolk.

    Newport News’ Hollydazzle is a one of a kind show that combines synchronized fireworks, theatrical lighting, ground-based pyrotechnics and special effects all choreographed to festive music, making it one of the top shows of the year. Light it up on November 30!

    December 1 is the date to see the historic Foster Falls village at New River State Park sparkle with more than 100,000 colorful lights. Enjoy free horse-drawn wagon rides and antique tractor hayrides. Warm up later with complimentary hot chocolate, coffee and pastries. A fee or a donation is required for this event. If you donate canned food, please be sure its expiration date hasn’t passed.

    This year’s Bull Run Festival of Lights in Centreville opens November 21 and runs through January 6. The festival is held each year to celebrate the winter season, bringing you a little warmth and cheer from the comfort of your car.

    Dominion GardenFest of Lights

    In Richmond, Dominion GardenFest Of Lights at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden is a a tradition featuring half-a-million lights, botanical decorations, trains, family activities and more. You won’t want to miss the 19-foot tall decorated tree, model trains and fairy houses or the fire pit for toasting s’mores. It all kicks off November 23 and runs through January 7.
