NORFOLK-Jetpack demonstrations will be part this year's Harborfest on the Norfolk waterfront, but you can get a sneak peek tonight.

Demonstrations by OBX Jetpack will start at 5:00 p.m. on May 10 at Town Point Park's Otter Berth.

During the 37th annual Harborfest this June, OBX Jetpak owner Butch Stone of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, will demonstrate how the Jetlev R200 lets his "pilots" walk on the water or hover right above the waves.

Crowds will be much smaller than the one million who attended OpSail last year.

"We will be able to reclaim the riverfront and stage a lot of the traditional events that we missed out on last year," said Ted Baroody of Festevents. 

The fireworks tradition will continue on Saturday night at 9:30!
