“It is our honor to welcome and pamper thousands of the most deserving American heroes for a weekend filled with great music, beautiful weather and patriotism,” said David Siegel, founder, president and CEO of Westgate Resorts. “Having served in the military myself, I know the importance of quality family time for those who are actively serving or who have recently served our country.”
This Westgate tradition is filled with family-fun activities including an annual 5K run, military vehicle demonstrations, live entertainment and so much more. Event guests will enjoy free admission to Westgate’s Shipwreck Island Water Park and witness mesmerizing illusions by our Las Vegas headlining magician Jen Kramer.
