Those requiring handicapped parking and special assistance are asked to report to Yorktown Middle School from 4 to 7 p.m. and must be checked in by 7 p.m. to take advantage of this service. Transportation will be provided for the disabled or special needs individual and one escort. Drop-off will be at Riverwalk Landing, approximately 200 yards from the performance area. Due to limited shuttle capacity, we politely request all other individuals in the party take a separate vehicle to park at the Yorktown Battlefield.
It’s important to note that once the shuttle is parked at the waterfront at 7:30 p.m., it will remain there until after the fireworks—with the first trip back to York Middle School beginning at 9:45 p.m. Return trips will take place until 10:30 p.m. Each person must possess his or her pass to board the shuttle.
While visitors are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, blankets, and coolers, alcoholic beverages are prohibited. There will be several Yorktown restaurants open for business, and several to-go options at the Patriotic Food Pavilion, which will be open from 4 to 9:15 p.m. The food trucks and vendors will be set up at Riverwalk Landing and include local favorites like SMOKE BBQ, Kona Ice, Chef Joseph, D.A.R.E. tent, Ben & Jerry’s, Boyd’s Tasty Dogs, Pop’s Kettle Corn, Snack Attack, and Coastal Thirst. Pavilion proceeds support the York-Poquoson Sheriff Office’s D.A.R.E. program.
The free air-conditioned Yorktown Trolley will run from approximately 10 a.m. (following the parade) until 5 p.m.
