The annual Pride Night at Kings Dominion in Doswell, Virginia, hosted by Brother Help Thyself (BHT) is set for Saturday, August 19th, from 3 pm to midnight. The event starts at 3 pm, with access to a private wave pool at the SoakCity water park starting as of 6 pm. The park closes to non BHT ticket holders at 8 pm, and the dance party in water park in front of Sharky’s runs from 9 pm to midnight.
“As we approach a nearly 20-year partnership with Kings Dominion, we always seek new ways to expand this great event that has been key to our ability to award more than $3 million in grants over our history,” said BHT president Jim Slattery. “And, for the first time in many years, since our event is before Labor Day, the Soak City water park will be available to our attendees, a desire expressed often by our supporters.”
The annual fundraiser will feature DJ Kuhmeleon, with residencies at Cobalt, the Baltimore Eagle, and Grand Central, among others, who will lead the event’s legendary dance party.
Admission is $41 with promo code PRIDENIGHT at Kingsdominion.com. (The promo code field is in upper right-hand corner of their homepage.) Admission gains entry into park at 3 pm. Soak City water park will be open and available, and admission gains exclusive access to one wave pool from 6 to 8 pm.
Proceeds from ticket sales go to support BHT’s mission of supporting LGBT and HIV/AIDS nonprofit organizations in the Baltimore and Washington, DC, metro areas. In 2016, BHT granted $75,000 to 30 community organizations.
