Spring chicks from First Things First Farm in Chesapeake, Honeybees from the Tidewater Beekeepers Association, and Sycamore Trees from the gardens of the Fred Heutte Center in Norfolk, VA all contributed to a fabulous first SpringFest. Animal adventures was the theme, and the SPCA volunteers had to provide several breaks for their popular pooch, Duchess, who was a favorite among young festival goers. The mobile reptile zoo of JB's Rattles may have been the most popular animal experience of the day.
Participants were greeted by Kelly's Choice, a non-profit that helped ensure the SpringFest was accessible before experiencing the new fitness craze, KnockerBall through Knocker Soccer and Last Man Standing. In between craft making and face painting, tricycle races were all the rage. The music tent, headed by Corey the Talented Blind Guy, was a place to jam with the instruments which were made at the craft table. Corn hole and activities by Children Included added an extra layer of fun to the day. Food truck fare by Kay's Kychin was the best according to onsite rave reviews.
