Virginia State Park will offer free parking at all parks throughout the day.

The first 100 visitors of each park will receive a bumper sticker.

There will be two contests to give visitors an opportunity to win $500 gift certificates.

Visitors can enter the drawing by registering, hiking and recording the hike on Jan. 1.

A photo contest will also be held for an opportunity to win a gift certificate.
