    • Handling the Heat: Animal Safety & High Temperatures
      The heat index soared this weekend, and that naturally raises questions about safety—for both our costumed interpreters and animals. Besides plenty of water, breaks, and shade, Coach & Livestock utilizes a heat index policy for working animals.  Cattle—like dogs—cannot sweat, so they are removed from work when the heat index reaches 95°.  Horses can swea […]

Discount Admission for First Responders @ Colonial Williamsburg

Colonial Williamsburg salutes first responders and their families with a very special offer: pay for a day and come back all year. Beginning March 16 through June 10, any member of law enforcement, fire and rescue, EMS technicians, 911 dispatchers, emergency management employees, as well as active duty military, guard and reserve personnel and their families can purchase a single day ticket at $39.95 for an adult and $20.95 for youth ages six to 12 and visit the rest of the year through Dec. 31 for free.  Children under six are free.

This special discounted pass for first responders is part of Colonial Williamsburg’s Salute to First Responders program. First responders simply go to the Colonial Williamsburg Regional Visitor Center to purchase the pass or it may be purchased online at www.colonialwilliamsburg.com/salute. Direct dependents of first responders also are entitled to the Salute program. First Responders must present proof of status as a First Responder at the time of purchase or at the time of redemption if purchased online.  The first responder must accompany minor dependents.

“Colonial Williamsburg recognizes the heroes who are on the front lines,” said Skip Ferebee, Colonial Williamsburg’s director of admission sales and consumer development. “The Foundation wants to thank dedicated emergency service personnel who protect their communities across the state 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”

Colonial Williamsburg’s Regional Visitor Center also features a special area for first responders’ families to check in for the Salute to First Responders program.

Colonial Williamsburg pass members enjoy benefits including:

  • Special programs such as “Bits and Bridles,” which discusses the stables and rare breeds program; “Behind the Scenes Tour at Bruton Heights,” which explores the Foundation’s educational outreach, library and object conservation facilities; and “Rubbish, Treasures and Colonial Life,” which showcases archaeological objects and the research being done by the Foundation’s archaeological staff;
  • 25 percent off tickets for most evening programs; and
  • Seasonal discounts on admission tickets for friends and family.

For more information, call 1-800-HISTORY. Passes may be purchased onsite at the Colonial Williamsburg Regional Visitor Center, 101-A Visitor Center Dr., Williamsburg, or online at www.colonialwilliamsburg.com/salute.
