TSD: Delaware’s best take on events, community and local life

thank-youDelaware State Parks are waiving admission fees on so-called “Black Friday,” November 25, encouraging children and families to enjoy the great outdoors. The Parks department has joined with recreation retailer REI to promote #optOutside, a national movement to explore nature and the beauty of state parks across the country.

Last year, the company closed all 149 locations on Black Friday and provided their more than 12,000 employees a paid day off in order to participate in the back-to-nature movement.

 Of course, there’s nothing stopping Delawareans from supporting local businesses and their hard working employees on Friday while also enjoying a complimentary visit to one of the state’s wonderful parks.

All Delaware State Parks gates will open at 8 a.m. Friday, Nov. 25. Park offices will be closed.
