If you served your nation, parking fees will be waived for you at all Virginia state parks on Veterans Day.

Besides the free parking Wednesday, state parks also will offer activities associated with Veterans Day. Sky Meadows State Park in Northern Virginia, for instance, will be home to a 5K run/walk to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.

Flag retirement ceremonies will also be held at a half-dozen state parks. They are Chippokes Plantation in Surry, Hungry Mother in Marion, James River in Gladstone, Kiptopeke on the Eastern Shore, Powhatan and Staunton River.
