“Positive Mental Attitude,” an acoustic duo based in Middlesex and a unique combo of ukulele and guitar, will perform on center stage at 11 a.m. Positive Mental Attitude is an acoustic duo based out of Middlesex.  The group was formed by two friends from West Point High School.  Their shared love of music brought them together one day at an open mic night in Urbanna.  The unique combination of ukulele and guitar give the duo a laid back, easy-going feel.  Since forming in January of 2012, Positive Mental Attitude  has played at various venues in Urbanna, Williamsburg, and all around Middlesex. This group has a strong love of music and can be found playing anywhere there is a patron of music.

The annual Heroes Parade will be at 2 p.m. The parade begins on Route 33 at the rescue squad building with Heritage Day grand marshals Raynell Smith and Jack Dozier leading the way.
