Love For VB: Reminders for Remembrance of May 31, 2019

As May 31 approaches, the City of Virginia Beach invites the community to show your "Love For VB" in remembrance of the lives lost and forever changed in May 2019.

On Tuesday, May 31, 2022, we invite you to:

  • Wear blue, the color of remembrance
  • Partake in a Moment of Silence at 4:06 p.m., the time that the first 911 call was received. Individuals are asked to pause wherever they are at that time.
  • Attend the in-person Three-Year Remembrance Ceremony to gather to remember those we lost, lift up survivors and all those affected and still healing. It will begin at 7 p.m. at Mount Trashmore Park. Limited seating is available in front of the stage. Guests are invited to bring their own chairs.

In observance, the departments previously located in Building 2 will modify operations on Tuesday, May 31. The departments of Planning, Public Utilities, Public Works and Information Technology will close at 3 p.m. For departmental information, visit
