Veterans! And we paid tribute to them on Veterans Appreciation Day at Playland May 29.

“Westchester County has the privilege of honoring our veterans, and Playland really is the perfect place to host it,” said County Executive Rob Astorino. “On behalf of a grateful county, thank you, welcome home, and God Bless each and every United States veteran, living and deceased.”

Veterans, as well as residents of all ages, enjoyed watching four U.S. Marine helicopters land on the field at Read Sanctuary. When the dust settled, spectators were allowed to go inside for a closer look.
