Kings Dominion paid tribute to American soldiers, in a blood-rushing, adrenaline pumping, explosive way. Military service members spent the day at the amusement park for FREE, riding the infamous coasters and enjoying the fireworks with their family.
WATCH: Coverage on WUSA9
This was Kings Dominion’s 2nd annual military tribute, honoring those who serve. There was a special fireworks show and evena moment of silence in the park to remember those lives lost at war.
DC’s Restaurant Week is right around the corner so what are you in the mood for?!? Check out Tricia Barba’s write up for WeLoveDC.com.
