Flowers aren't the only things that start to bloom in April. The warming weather coaxes the local residents and early bird tourists out of their cozy, comfy homes and into the brisk refreshing spring air. April starts the year off right because there is something fun to do virtually every single weekend. Check out what events are happening this month!


Crush N' Run 5k and Beach Run

Happening April 6, 2019.

You don't even have to be a runner to enjoy this fun Virginia Beach annual event. The Crush N' Run invites all to participate in their 5k run. We think the best part about this race (aside from taking in the gorgeous views of the oceanfront) is the after-party! Immediately after finishing the 5k, you'll be handed Waterman's famous Orange Crush. Enough said. Get registered by clicking here!
