I'm planning on visiting the park for the first time ever next weekend, food and wine will only sweeten the trip even more :lover:

Is Taste Of Virginia the new Spring Bloom Festival where they offered the different ethnic food offerings for the past couple of years?

Seems like they might be somewhat limited in terms of what they can do with Virginia-esque type of foods, but I certainly like the sounds of Virginia-based beer and wine offerings. It's always nice to try out some of the local micros when visiting a long distance park.

Hope to see a report from the festival (hint, hint, Chuck)! ;)

^I think it is a different version of the Spring Bloom Festival, which had some good offerings. I'm hoping to get up there one day for it, but I'm booked up this weekend.

Thinking of going to KD on Sunday. How are the crowds at this time of the year?

If it's Sunday, you're fine. Crowds should be minimal (the only exception may be Volcano). Waits shouldn't be that bad either.

Hey, I think I'm going there on Sunday too...

Main act just cancelled their date in Richmond, so we have an offday. Seeing how Kings Dominion is just down the street, and it's not like it's a park I'd travel all the way from Sweden to visit. It'd be pretty stupid not to go...

Something interesting: the 50s theme appears to be going bye-bye in that back section of Candy Apple Grove, as evident by the removal of the props in and around the diner and the removal of theming in that one shop.

Can't say I'm too upset. It seemed very tacky. Hopefully this means that the diner becomes a better eatery.

Alright, someone that lives in Virginia should know better than me. We're thinking of doing a 2-day trip to hit Kings Dominion and Busch Gardens on May 29th and 30th. Am I a complete and total psychopath thinking of visiting the park on Memorial Day? Should we just wait an extra week and hit the parks on June 5th and 6th?
