This Thursday and all throughout the weekend, families around the great state of Minnesota will be celebrating Independence Day. And one of Minnesota's biggest attractions is doing something special for the Americans who make our freedom possible.

In honor of both Military and Independence Day, Valleyfair will be offering free admission to military members over the holiday weekend:

The deal runs Thursday, July 4th through Sunday, July 7th. Military members just need to present a valid military ID at the front gates to get in for free. This includes all active military, retired military, National Guard, veterans, and those have been honorably discharged. In addition, up to six family members can buy tickets for $37.

I think this is pretty cool of them to give back to the people who really deserve it, so hopefully this will lead to some great memories being created this weekend for our military families in Minnesota.

For a list of everything happening at Valleyfair this weekend, go here. Have a great Independence Day, and thank you to all those who continue to serve (or have served) in the military.
