LOWNDES COUNTY, GA (WALB) –Wild Adventures is saluting the men and women who serve and protect our country this Labor Day weekend. Families can learn about community services and get a free ticket to the park if they donate to a good cause.

Wild adventures celebrates Red White and You. It's the park's salute to the women and men who serve and protect.

 "It's a way to give back to them and give our guests a chance to give back and salute them as well," said Micha Hogan with Wild Adventures.

On Saturday, there will be displays and demonstrations like fire safety, a live car extrication, and also repelling from a dozen organizations.

Second Harvest will also be out collecting canned goods to feed the hungry.

"It's essentially a buy one get one free," said Tamela Myers with Second Harvest of South Georgia.

If you bring in a canned good during the three-day weekend and also buy a ticket to the park you get a ticket free.

Last year the food bank received four tons of canned goods and this year they're hoping to double that number.

"I think everyone knows in this economy people are struggling companies are closing their doors," said Myers. "They're being laid off. This is one way we can help to alleviate that stress."

If you come to Wild Adventures this weekend you can donate a canned good for a free ticket, celebrate community heroes, and as always, enjoy the thrills the theme park offers.

You only need one can for the food drive at the park to get the buy one get one free admission, but they're hoping you'll bring more than that so Second harvest can meet its goal of 16,000 pounds to help the hungry.
