Thank you EVERYONE for coming out and supporting Celebrate Virginia Live and Project 324 as we kicked off the 2013 concert season. The concert Friday night with Billy Currington was amazing. I had fun helping to set up for the show and meeting all the vendors and sponsors. We could not do this with out all of you and the volunteers.

It was great to see everyone having fun and dancing to the music and signing along. Seeing and hearing about friends running into each other that they hadn’t seen in awhile.

We love getting feedback from the community. What did you like? What would you like to see? What was your favorite moment? You can post comments here or on the CVL Facebook or Twitter accounts.

I wanted to say thank you to Thunder 104.5 for sponsoring Harmony Cove this year. I had a lot of fun talking and playing with the kids. Did you have a picture taken in the Foto Booth? I love bounce houses and thought we should add them to the area this year. I was so busy I didn’t even take a twirl on the bull. You bet I will be doing that at the next show.

While we were setting up I was getting hungry watching all the food trucks arrive. As the night went on, my stomach was growling watching plates of beach fries and funnel cakes walking by. I did manage to cool off with my favorite Hawaiian Ice.

I hope we will see you all out there for Sheryl Crow on July 12th. Please spread the word. Tell your neighbors, co-workers, friends, and family. Tickets are still available online or at Legends Sports Grille. 

See you at the show.

You know that feeling you get when you know something exciting is about to happen. Well that is how I feel right now. I have been waiting for months to kick off the Celebrate Virginia Live Concert Series and that day is FINALLY here.

I have been at the site this week and I love watching everything come together. You can feel the excitement and energy out on the field. It is great to see all the people ready to enjoy a Friday night in the ‘burg. I am looking forward to enjoying some of my favorite foods today.

In a few hours I will be on stage ready to get the crowd rolling along with my friends from Thunder 104.5.

Who is coming to see Billy? Make sure you say hi! when you see me walking around. Thank you to all the amazing sponsors that help make this show possible along with the amazing CVL Team. It is going to be a great year…….

Love,

Megs

You Don’t Want To Miss This..

It’s the weekend …love the smell of the fresh cut grass. I look around and I see families on blankets, girlfriends talking, a mom and a dad having a date night, a grandma and grandpa holding hands sitting in their lawn chairs, bunch of guys walking around saying hi! to the ladies. I smell French fries cooking in the Beach Fries food truck. Kids are running around laughing and giggling. I pass my teacher, I see an old friend, I wave to some friends who are excited to be up close and personal.

This is Celebrate Virginia Live!

This is where people near and far come out to enjoy a nice night. Relax after a long week. Get together with family and friends. You don’t want to miss this.

Last year my brother graduated high school. He spent many weekends of the summer enjoying concerts with his friends at Celebrate Virginia Live. He knew soon they would all part ways. They were all going to different colleges, some in different states.  He knew things would change, but the one memory they all had was those summer nights.

I love when he calls home from college and asks, “Hey Megs, who is coming to CVL this year”. His first year of college has ended and he is on his way home soon. Aside from searching for a job, he plans on reuniting with the guys and head to CVL to see Billy Currington on May 17th.

In two weeks I will be out there walking the grounds saying hi to everyone, waving from the stage, as I stand with my friends from Thunder 104.5. I can’t wait to meet the vendors, talk to the sponsors, and welcome all the amazing artists who chose Fredericksburg as a stop on their concert tour.

The weather is getting warmer and summer is just around the corner. Music means memories and there is no better place then having a concert close to home.

Trust me…you don’t want to miss this.

32 Days….I am EXCITED!!

Well we are 32 days away from kicking off the 2013 Celebrate Virginia Concert Series. Billy Currington will be coming to town to get things rolling. I am very excited.

If you are just joining my blog and wondering who is “Megs in the ‘burg”, well I am the Junior Officer in Command, Official Ambassador and Blogger for Celebrate Virginia Live. I dare you to try and say that all at once…hehe!

What does that BIG title mean? It means that I will be bringing you up to date information and behind the scenes fun at Celebrate Virginia Live and Project 324. I want to get out and meet the crowd, sponsors, businesses, families, and everyone that makes Celebrate Virginia a great way to spend the summer.

We have more big announcements coming. You need to stay tuned. I also invite you to send me questions you would like me to ask the talent that will be joining us this summer. You can send me or tweet ideas and recommendations. At Celebrate Virginia, we want to bring you the best experience.

I can’t wait to get out there and start the season. If you don’t have them already, pick up your tickets online or at Legends Sports Grille in Fredericksburg.

Love…

Megs ♥

Concerts Announced….summer will be here soon!

Image

I am very excited. The first three concerts of the Celebrate Virginia Concerts season have been announced. May 17th, Billy Currington, August 9th, Trace Adkins, and August 23rd, Brett Michaels. More will be coming and I will make sure to keep you updated. I am excited to resume my duties representing Project 3l24 the “Official Charity” of Celebrate Virginia Live. It is going to be an amazing season.

I am looking forward to having Brett Michaels at Celebrate Virginia. We have a lot in common. I hope we get a chance to talk. We both have had open heart surgery, suffered a transient ischemic attack (TIA), raise awareness for charity, and love animals. My best friend Baileigh is a juvenile diabetic and so is Brett. He has done an amazing job to bring awareness to the disease. Like me, he believes you should serve as a role model and inspire people young and old to be get involved. I do not allow my “challenges” to define me. I have a BIG voice, but my platform is small, this is why I love when celebrities use their status to raise awareness. I hope everyone will come on out to the shows this summer. Spread the word. Bring your family and friends. It is a great way to spend a summer night. The more people we can have in attendance the bigger the shows will become.

I can’t wait to get my hands on a radio and twirl around the grounds on the golf cart. I wonder if I will be able to bedazzle a radio in rhinestones….hmmm!

See you soon..
