Transforming Denbigh

Saturday, February 1, 2020

The City of Newport News is holding a Transforming Denbigh event on Saturday, February 1, from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the site of the former Kmart building at the corner of Warwick Boulevard and Oriana Road. Citizens are invited to leave their mark on the building by tagging or painting the exterior walls before the demolition ceremony takes place at noon. The ceremony will mark the beginning of the transformation of the Denbigh area of the city and will feature Mayor McKinley L. Price operating an excavator to take the first “bite” out of the building. Free activities during the event will include a “touch-a-truck” area with City vehicles, construction theme inflatable games, chalk art activities, free give-a-ways and a DJ. Food trucks will be onsite selling food and beverage items. Admission and parking are free.
