Armed Forces Day is Saturday at Knoebels

ELYSBURG – An Armed Forces Day observance is set for this weekend. The annual Knoebels Armed Forces Day Celebration is this Saturday. Organizers say they set aside the day as a way to say thank you for serving our country.  For all of the men and women who have served in US armed forces, Knoebels says they will enjoy a free ride pass.

From 11am to 4pm, park visitors can visit with military branches and learn about career and service opportunities. The recruiters will be near the Impulse roller coaster. From noon to 4pm, they will be at a veteran and military resource fair at the bandshell.

They’ll be patriotic music at 1pm and at 2 o’clock, they will hold the Presentation of Colors, Veteran Recognition, and guest speaker Sergeant Major Kevin Bittenbender. Bittenbender is a veterans advocate. For the free ride passes, Knoebels says bring a valid driver’s license with military ID, or other official retirement or discharge papers.
