Kick it with King Tut this weekend at the 10th annual Egyptian Festival in Hampton.
This three-day extravaganza from Friday to Sunday includes photo opportunities with pharaohs, ancient Egyptian artifacts, and a hieroglyphics station.
There will be free tours of the local St. George Coptic Orthodox Church, where guests can learn about the Coptic Church’s nearly 2,000-year-old history, in addition to a kids corner with bounce houses, henna tattoos and face painting.
