Rivahfest June 18th, 2011 in Tappahannock, Virginia on the Rappahannock River
RIVAHFEST , The annual festival to celebrate life on the Rivah here in Tappahannock, VA was a huge success! Thousands of visitors to Tappahannock enjoyed wonderful food, music, vendors, arts, crafts and acitivities for the whole family. The Essex Bed and Breakfast Inn is located right on Water Lane, smack in the middle of all the activity and fun. Many people use our lawn to sit and watch all the festivities. The Essex Inn also is part of the walking tour offered that day with 5 historic Tappahannock buildings open to view to the public. The tour is especially nice for us because we can showcase the inn to people who have not yet visited with us and let them know of our unique history and our beautiful property. If you haven't experienced RIVAHFEST yet, make plans to join us at The Essex Bed and Breakfast Inn next year.
