NORFOLK, Va. - It's almost the weekend! Here are the morning team's top picks of things going on around Hampton Roads.

1. The Norfolk Waterfront Jazz Festival is this weekend. The festival is both Friday and Saturday, from 5:00 p.m. until 11:00 p.m. at the Norfolk Scope Arena. David Sandborn and Boney James are headlining this year's event which returns to the city after a COVID-relates hiatus. Advance ticket prices start at $30. Two-day passes are also available.

The festival has been relocated to the Norfolk Scope Arena in downtown Norfolk due to inclement weather in the forecast for the weekend. The event was originally scheduled to be held at Town Point Park.

2. Harry Connick, Jr. and His Band are coming to Portsmouth. The concert is at the Atlantic Union Pavilion this Saturday night at 8:00 p.m. Lawn seats start at $22.

3. The Coastal Craft Beer Festival is back at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront Saturday. The event is part of the ongoing Neptune Festival events. You can sample beer from 30 breweries attending the event. There will also be live music to enjoy and food trucks selling meals.
