NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) – Do you love the outdoors? Well, you’re in luck, because the Outdoor Enthusiast Event is returning to Newport News this Saturday.
The event will take place at Newport News Park and will last from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. It will include activities such as rock climbing, axe throwing, boating activities, yoga, hiking, a ninja warrior course, a live gator show and more. The event is free and will feature children’s activities, food and craft beer vendors and more.
Cody Lundin, a best-selling author and internationally-recognized survival professional, is the guest speaker and will discuss wilderness skills and primitive living.
