You probably don't even need a schedule of events in the Richmond Region. If it's hot, head to the river. Find a tube, find a raft, find a kayak. Hang out until it gets dark. Then go to a brewery. Head to a release party this weekend at Triple Crossing or Hardywood or have a refreshing cider from Blue Bee. It's your #RVA Weekend: Roller Derbies and Beer Releases.
