    Neptune Festival

    Next weekend I will be visiting the Neptune Festival and staying Friday night at the Hampton Inn and all day Saturday on the boardwalk and watch the parade. Any tips on what to do and to do relative to carrying, OC/CC?

    It appears the the Virginia Beach Neptune Festival is entirely on public property.

    Per state law and preemption, you are good to OC.
    Better to not open your mouth and be thought the fool, than to open it and remove all doubt.

    Yep, Grapeshot is right, preemption applies. Besides, with all the drunkeness and problems that have been going down at the oceanfront this year, I wouldn't go to the Neptune festival without a gun. Seems it would be counterproductive to personal safety to leave your firearm at home in such a volatile atmosphere.

    Have fun! I've been to many of them (mandatory fun when I was active duty), and they have some good food too.

    Neptune Festival RARELY sees the kinds of problems that other [ahem] "ethnic" gatherings seem to produce.

    Never argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

    Used to go every year during the day. Lots of fun. Lots of vendors. It is a good place to get Christmas presents for family.
