The fun unfolds on Tuesday, May 21, from 4:30 PM to 7:00 PM. Be sure to be there by 5:00 PM to catch the live musical performance by the local favorite, Joe’s Day Off, and enjoy some delicious, complimentary food.

Community Building Lawn, 401 N. Boundary St., Williamsburg, VA.

  • Live Music and Free Food: Groove to the tunes of Joe’s Day Off while enjoying free hot dogs and hamburgers prepared by Chef Jay Burton. Don’t miss out on the delicious sno-balls and ice cream served by Sno-to-Go.
  • Community Art Project: Get creative with a community art project sponsored by the Williamsburg Public Art Council. Inspired by Iker Muro’s mural “Between Lanterns and Tulips,” participants will contribute to a large canvas that mimics a beautiful lantern, just like the ones in the mural.
