Henricus ‘Hops’ event about more than beer


The crowds thronged roads and walkways leading to their destination. Some visitors pushed strollers; many brought multiple children; others came singly or in couples. But all shared the same singlemindedness and eagerness to achieve their goals.

No, it wasn't Black Friday.

These visitors came seeking history, family fun – and beer.

The second annual Hops In The Park Harvest Festival, held Nov. 12 at Henricus Historical Park, showcased Virginia craft beverages of all kinds and had representatives from 21 breweries, cideries and meaderies on hand, in addition to hops farmers from around the commonwealth. > Read more.

Henrico skating club trains national, international youth champions

Forgive the passersby who glance at the blue-and-yellow tin building on Williamsburg Road, in the shadows of Richmond International Airport, and wonder whether someone is secretly filming a 1970s-version of the social media hit "mannequin challenge" – but with buildings instead of people.

With its iconic V-shaped entrance beams and retro-style logo, the Roller Dome appears frozen in place from an era long since gone. But it's not here to impress the connoisseur of modern architecture.

If you’re looking for something impressive, however, step inside and meet some of the people who call this facility home for much of the week. They are regional, national and even world champions – titleholders in a sport that is immensely popular in other parts of the world but relatively unknown here. > Read more.
