New Town is partnering with James City County and the Greater Williamsburg Chamber & Tourism Alliance to host part of the Fireball Run! Fireball Run is a web series, where teams consisting of celebrities and astronauts travel down the East Coast, stopping in certain locations and completing various different challenges. This event benefits America's Missing Children nationally, and here in the James City County, York County, Williamsburg area, benefits go to Child Development Resources (CDR) -- www.CDR.org. We are happy to say that the Fireball Run series will be filmed in New Town on September 28th in the afternoon. At 3:30pm there will be a free meet-and-great and a car show on Main Street, where people are welcome to come and meet the Fireball participants.
