What’s the 4-1-1 for the 9-1-1 folk?

We will still hold our event! Awards will be indoors and the food will be under the shelter in the pavilion. If you don’t mind getting a little wet, Kings Dominion is actually a lot of fun in the rain. The lines are shorter the midway becomes it’s own slip and slide, and you wont need to take a shower for a week following a rain soaked ride on the Intimidator 305!

The LED signs located at the entrance to the Pavillions will display what shelter we are in.

SoakCity will be CLOSED for this event.

We suggest that if you are a nominee or a special speaker you wear your dress uniform or something that will photograph well. A video recording of the ceremony will be made and pictures of the award winners will be taken to be shown at the Governors’ Awards.

We also suggest that you bring a change of comfortable clothes including good walking shoes. You will want to change at some point so that you can enjoy your day in the park.
