HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY)– The City of Hampton is planning a ribbon-cutting celebration to mark the reopening of the boardwalk at the newly renovated Buckroe Beach.

It was originally scheduled for May 27, but has been postponed due to the possibility of severe weather that day. The rescheduled date is June 30.

The Buckroe Renovation Celebration will begin at 4 p.m. and will continue for three hours, with live music and a community event. It is free and open to the public.

The $6 million project was done in two phases with one beginning in the spring of 2021 and the second phase this year. A historical sign that had been damaged by a motorist has been restored and placed in a different position.

The boardwalk now has new decorative lights and has been extended.
