Our Richmond inn is “in the middle of it all” for two fun-filled Richmond events in April!
Venture Richmond brings Easter on Parade, that annual event bringing over 25,000 Richmonders and Virginians to Monument Avenue on Easter Sunday. It’s not a traditional parade: attendees parade up and down scenic Monument Avenue between Allen and Davis Avenues. Monument Avenue, named to the National Register of Historic Landmarks, will be closed to all but pedestrian traffic between Allen and Davis (or the Robert E Lee and Jefferson Davis monuments) on Easter Sunday, April 4, 2010 between 1 PM and 5 PM. The celebration includes music, arts, crafts, children’s activities, food, a petting zoo – and most importantly pet and people watching. Everyone will be dressed in their finest or most outlandish regalia! Highlights include a Pet Bonnet Showcase/Contest at 3 PM and a People Bonnet Showcase/Contest at 4 PM. Don’t miss it!
Historic Garden Week in Virginia, presented by the Garden Club of Virginia, is scheduled for April 17 through 25, 2010. The Garden Club of Virginia has been holding this event for 77 years and devoting the proceeds to preserving Virginia’s heritage properties and gardens. Though featuring homes and gardens all over the Commonwealth of Virginia, the Windsor Farms neighborhood of Richmond area will be featured on Tuesday April 20, Church Hill, on Wednesday April 21, and West Avenue, just two blocks away from our bed and breakfast, will open homes and gardens to visitors on Thursday April 22. In addition special evening activities are planned Thursday at Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens.
Make your plans now to take advantage of these very Virginia events! Pick your guest room at our historic Fan District bed and breakfast and make it a Spring Fling! to remember on Easter weekend or during Garden Week or – even both. We’d love to share the best of central Virginia with you.
