OK, first of all, I am shocked that Memorial Day weekend is coming in less than a week. How did that happen? Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial beginning of the summer, even though my kids still have nearly another month left in school.
I’m excited to share details about a special Memorial Day salute at Kings Dominion in Virginia. Kings Dominion is celebrating Memorial Day all weekend long with extended fireworks shows, live entertainment, special offers and more. Plus (and this is the exciting part for so many of my military friends) – all active and retired military personnel get FREE admission to the park!
Memorial Weekend Salute: Honoring Our Heroes
Here are just a few things that you have to look forward to this Memorial Day weekend at Kings Dominion:
Music: Each day during Memorial Day weekend will begin with a live performance of the National Anthem by TRADOC Army Band or 380th Army Band on International Street. They’ll have an additional fife and drum performance on Memorial Day.
Red, White and Blue: In honor of the USA, the park will be decked out in stars and stripes. You’ll have to keep your eyes open for a chance to meet Uncle Sam!
USO and Candice Smith Find the USO under the Eiffel Tower giving out information. On May 28 Candice Smith from NBC12 will greet fans and sign autographs.
Fireworks: Of course there has to be fireworks! Kings Dominion has expanded their fireworks display, with even more fireworks than ever.
