Make sure you stop by TCC Perry Glass Wheel Arts Center during NEON Festival

Sample bourbon flamed apples and sway to jazz music under a fall night’s sky.

Join Tidewater Community College at the 5th Annual NEON Festival in Norfolk on Friday, Oct. 18, from 6 to 10 p.m.

The two-night festival, which starts on Oct. 17, celebrates the energy and light in Norfolk’s arts district. On tap at the TCC Perry Glass Wheel Arts Center at 128 W. Olney Road will be:

  • Culinary arts students from the college serving homemade bourbon flamed apples, the scrumptious dessert made with apples and bourbon and flambéed. Delish!
  • Glassblowing demonstrations by staff from TCC’s Visual Arts Center. We promise it will make you want to take a glassblowing class!
  • Music from the Blue Moon Jazz Ensemble
  • Lots of artwork! All the art inside the TCC Glass Wheel Arts Center will be for sale. In addition to faculty artwork, check out the whimsical mixed media animals made from found and recycled objects created by Virginia Beach artist Barbara Kobylinska.

The rest of the festival includes the unveiling of five new murals, public art tours, community programming and additional entertainment. For more information, visit the festival website.
