I love June in Richmond! There is so much going on, everyone's still excited about the amazing weather and not yet oppressed by the impending humidity! Here's a guide to what's going on this weekend! It's Father's Day on Sunday, there's a brand new event that Richmond is hosting this year and lots of fun to be had!
Big Field Day
When: Saturday June 18th @ 2pm
How Much: $30
Hosted by XL102, listen to bands, drink beer and have a good time while waiting for the main stage act Blink 182! You know they're your guilty pleasure...
Slide the City
Where: Byrd Street
When: Saturday, June 18th 12 pm - 7 pm
How Much: $40 NOW, $45 day of event
The first time ever this event is being hosted in RVA! Watch as Slide the City turns an entire street (and it's kinda steep might I add..) into an awesome water slide!!! There are tiers of sliding times so you don't have to wait in line forever, and you get a drawstring backpack, a tube and a...mouthguard? Just in case. It's a world record length water slide, so come prepared for fun.
Father's Day Keg 'n' Oyster Fest
Where: Hardywood Park Craft Brewery
When: Sunday, June 19th 12 pm - 5 pm
How Much: FREE!
Does your dad like beer? Duh. What about oysters? Eh, doesn't matter, there's beer! If you want to treat your father to something cool, take him to the hippest place in town to grab a brew and say hey, Dad, Thanks!
