VIEWPOINT: The Richmond Jazz Festival at Maymont

Well, it's here, my favorite weekend of the year; the Richmond Jazz Festival at Maymont. Without question, the Richmond Jazz Festival has become one of the most popular music festivals on the east coast and once again it will live up to that billing.

What a great time for the Richmond region community to come together to enjoy the universal language of music. If you enjoy, jazz, R&B and soul, the Jazz Festival is the place to be. Not only is it a great opportunity to enjoy great music, but you will be able to do it at of the most historic and beautiful settings in the country, Maymont Park.

While we all enjoy the gift of great music, food and fun, the Jazz Festival has a great economic impact on the city and the region with tourists enjoying our fine hotels, restaurants, museums and historic places of interest.

NBC12 has been a sponsor from the beginning and we are proud of our association with this premiere music festival. Here's the other good news, it's still not too late to purchase tickets.

I look forward to seeing you this weekend!
