Virginia Beach, Virginia
The City of Virginia Beach was blessed by the continuing, guiding hand of this visionary leader.
Richard H. Kline, King Neptune II
Frederick J. Napolitano, Sr., King Neptune IV
In 1974, through their work as leaders of the Virginia Beach Chamber of Commerce, these two well respected businessmen conceived the idea and brought to fruition the first annual celebration of the Virginia Beach Neptune Festival. Each was later selected as a King of Neptune.
Today, citizens and visitors from across the world gather each September to celebrate the heritage of this city by the sea.
