Virginia Beach, Virginia (WAVY) — Hundreds of people flocked to the oceanfront on Saturday night in search of Virginia Beach tradition.
The holiday parade on the beach has been fully revived after being canceled last December due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“It feels great to be back and see all the holiday lights and everyone having fun with family and friends,” said one event attendee.
Previous cancellations will not be forgotten by the audience. Some people hesitated to join this year because of the virus, but they chose to come anyway.
This year’s oceanfront parade began at 5:30 pm on 15th Avenue and ended on 25th Avenue.
Hundreds of people lined up on Pacific Avenue to get a glimpse of their favorite floats.
“I’m a little prejudiced. Dominion was my favorite part,” said a parade participant on the company’s float. “But Santa is coming now, so it’s pretty cool too.” Some Santas attended, and some featureless hilarious grinch also attended.
Despite the excitement, most event attendees will agree that the real gifts are in front of each other over the years.
“It’s like what we do every year,” said a teen standing with his family. “That’s what we can do as a family and what we’re looking forward to.”
