Every July 4th (except when July 4th is a Sunday and the event is held on July 3rd), the old town of South Norfolk comes to life in full red, white and blue to celebrate the birth of our nation with an old-fashioned parade and a picnic at Lakeside Park, 1441 Bainbridge Blvd., Chesapeake, VA 23324.
Thousands gather each year along the parade route to cheer the hundred or more units of civic groups, bands, businesses and non-profits, most of whom represent South Norfolk exclusively.
After the parade, follow the crowds into Lakeside Park where more family fun, food and frivolity await at the Picnic in the Park, with music, games, community vendors, prizes and contests. 

Now seeking event sponsors, craft vendors, food vendors and community group vendors.
