A Weekend Away From It AllCollege Beach Weekend is an unofficial annual event in Virginia Beach. During the weekend before finals, local college students take a break from the stress of their studies to relax with friends and enjoy a little sunshine. Pharrell Williams saw potential and a need for structure in this tradition, and Something in the Water was born in April 2019 to provide students and locals with something to do. Ironically, the first day of the inaugural event had to be cancelled due to way too much water from a heavy rainstorm. Nevertheless, the festival was so successful that officials of the City of Virginia Beach voted it into their annual budget. Expect an exciting and fun-filled spring weekend in Virginia for years to come.
