Lake Drummond Kayak Excursion

9:30am-3:30pm.
$35 per person (includes equipment).
757.514.4130

Row, row, row your boat!

You’ve never kayaked like this before. Experience the unusual and breathtaking Lake Drummond, a 3,108-acre bowl-shaped lake located near the center of the Great Dismal Swamp. The largest of only two naturally occurring lakes in Virginia, on windless days on the lake, the water appears smooth as glass as the horizon disappears into the sky above.

Lake Drummond stands only 18 feet above sea level, and though it is three miles wide, it is only 6 to 7 feet deep, allowing great cypresses to rise from its still, shallow waters. Tannic acid from forest vegetation stains the water. Guided kayak tours are facilitated by a water adventures outfitter with years of experience. Enjoy a half day tour of the lake. All equipment is included with registration fee. Participants must be at least 8 years old and accompanied by a parent or legal guardian if younger than 12. Sunscreen, insect repellent and comfortable clothing recommended. Participants are encouraged to bring a bag lunch and bottled water.

Rear Window: A Suffolk Month of Mystery Event

Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts
110 W. Finney Avenue
2-4pm. Free and open to the public.
757.514.4130

Join the Suffolk Division of Tourism at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, August 23, 2016, at the Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts for a FREE Mystery Movie, when we show the classic Rear Window. Receiving widespread critical acclaim and ranked as one of the top mystery films of all time, this 1954 film stars Jimmy Stewart, Grace Kelly and Raymond Burr.

Photagrapher L.B. "Jeff" Jeffries is confined to his small apartment with a broken leg. To pass the time, he watches the goings-on of his motley assortment of neighbors - a frustrated yet fun-loving composer, a middle-aged couple with a small dog, a dancer who seems to enjoy practicing her routines while scantily clad, a pair of reclusive newlyweds, a lonely woman who seems to live in a fantasy world, and a salesman and his invalid wife. One day the wife inexplicably disappears, and the salesman starts doing things that lead Jeff to suspect that he may have murdered her. Unfortunately, he has no proof and no one seems to believe him. Eventually, however, things start falling together in a way that make it look like Jeff might just be right after all. Finally, his girlfriend Lisa and his nurse Stella come up with a plan to catch the killer red-handed. But doing so could put all of their lives in danger.

This Academy-Award nominated film was directed by the great Alfred Hitchcock and has a running time of 118 minutes.
