  1. Hampton Carousel

    June 1, 2021, 11:00 AM - December 31, 2021, 8:00 PM @ Carousel Park & Hampton Carousel

    After being closed for over a year due to the pandemic, the Hampton Carousel opens for the 2021 season on June 1 with COVID protocols. Located in Carousel Park and operated by the Hampton History Museum, the former Buckroe Beach carousel is one of the City of Hampton’s most treasured historic assets. Built in 1920, the carousel is completely restored to its original beauty and housed in its own weather-protected pavilion at Carousel Park on the city’s downtown waterfront. It is one of only 170 antique wooden merry-go-rounds still existing in the U.S. Hand crafted by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company for the Buckroe Beach Amusement Park, Hampton's Carousel is a whirling tribute to the skill of its creators. The Hampton Carousel will operate under federal, state and City of Hampton COVID-19 protocols. Guests will be required to wear masks when inside the carousel building, practice social distancing, and use hand-sanitizer before and after rides.

  2. Mayor's Forum on Facebook Live

    June 28, 2021, 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM @ Facebook Live online

    Hampton Mayor Donnie Tuck will host fellow Hampton Roads mayors as they continue their discussion on public safety on Monday, June 28, at 7 p.m. on Facebook Live. The mayors of all seven major Hampton Roads participated in the first Mayors’ Forum, held in April, and are invited to return. Much of the discussion involved preventing violence by implementing programs and activities aimed at teens and young adults, primarily Black males, who are disproportionally affected by violence. Viewers are welcome to write questions and comments while they watch. This second forum comes at a time when violence has been increasing across Hampton Roads and the nation. An article in The Virginian-Pilot noted that Norfolk General Hospital, the region’s level 1 adult trauma center, treated 38% more violence-related trauma patients in 2020 than the year before, and that trend is continuing into 2021. The vast majority of the victims, said the article, were Black men.
