With the Army gone, Fort Monroe is hosting its first public event at the historic Hampton fortress.
It’s called a "Shuck `N Shag Feast at the Fort" and the Kiwanis Club event is planned for this Thursday. It is hoped that this is the first of many parties, concerts and festivals at the waterfront property.
Just last week, the U.S. Army handed over responsibility for managing Fort Monroe to Virginia, which wants to turn much of the fort’s valuable land at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay into a national park.
What: Kiwanis Clubs of Division 13 Shuck ‘N Shag Feast at the Fort, featuring live music from ‘Bill Deal’s Original Rhondels’, FRESH buffet-style seafood from the Virginia Seafood Council, beer and wine included
When: 5:30-8:30 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 22, 2011
Where: Fort Monroe,Hampton
