Summer is flying by! And what a wonderful summer it has been! August will prove to be a truly special time and we can’t wait to share the many great events we have planned.
The big event this August, of course, is the USLA Championships from August 8th to the 11th. The massive event takes place on the beach from 27th Street to 31st Street. Surf & Rescue Lifeguards from all over the United States will be showing off their amazing life-saving skills right on our doorstep.
We are proud to open our doors with free admission to all the participants. We’ll be hosting Happy Hour nights on Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday nights during the competition.
We’ll be serving our popular Lifeguard Lager, and will ask our lifeguards, both visiting and local, to sign our wall panel in the “Rescue Runs Deep” exhibit. We are renewing our Lifeguard Plaque campaign as well, offering Surf & Rescue professionals a chance to preserve their own history.
Our regular Happy Hour series will be back on August 22nd, and 29th.
Don’t forget, our very popular Ghost Walks are in full swing, with programs being offered every Tuesday and Saturday at 7pm. After enjoying your guided tour with our Gatsby themed guides, you’ll be able to try out some ghost hunting for yourself inside the museum.
We are also excited to be able to offering the beautiful Surf & Rescue Museum as a rental space. Our gorgeous lower gallery offers a wonderful venue for your very special event. We’ll have all of the rental information available this month.
If you haven’t already, be sure to check out our active blog. Our staff, summer interns, and volunteers all take turns contributing. Our blog page is a fun place to spend some time reading about our adventures!
Thank you to everyone that has been visiting and contributing through our summer season. With our newly renovated galleries, and even more new programs on the horizon, we are proud to continue sharing this amazing place on the center of the Virginia Beach Boardwalk.
