2017 Update

Antique Car Parade

Please join us as we start our day with an Antique Car Parade beginning at 9AM at the Chrysler Museum and ending at the Williams School.  The parade will be led by an early 20th century fire truck and Norfolk Mayor Kenny Alexander.  At the school Gary Coggins and the children will sing The Star Spangled Banner and Mayor Alexander will give a rousing kick-off to begin our day.  The cars and fire truck will be parked in front of our homeowner houses and in front of the school for visitors to admire rather than in Beechwood Park.

Plant Sale

The Plant Sale will be at the Ingram Rose Garden and not in Beechwood Park.  Plants have been transplanted from garden club members’ gardens and are predominantly native Virginia plants.
