Veteran’s Day is Friday November 11.

The Sunday after veteran’s Day it is free admission into Texas State parks for everybody in the state.

Aaron Friar, with Texas State Parks, says nobody pays park day use fees on Sunday, November 13.

That’s a really cool way that we’re trying to honor our veterans and our active military. The only caveat is that it doesn’t apply to camping fees or activity fees. But all day use fees are waived.

Battleship Texas, offers two events Saturday November 12 to honor Veterans. During the day, join the crew aboard ship for a day of patriotic fun! In the evening, experience a 1945 themed victory dance with live music on the main deck of the ship, games, food and drink. Period or military dress is welcomed, but not required.

This is for the 18 and up. But, it’s a great tour where you actually get onto the ship and you get to really learn about what it was like for day-to-day life for a sailor on the ship. And they’ll take you through it all; they’ll teach you all the card games and all the different activities that kept them busy while they were on the ship. So, it’s a pretty neat event.
