Instead of spending Friday fighting for the best deals, spend some time enjoying the natural beauty of Minnesota with Free Park Friday.

There will be no entrances fees to Minnesota state parks and recreation areas on Friday, November 25th.

Minnesota Lt. Governor Tina Smith said, "“I wish everyone in Minnesota a peaceful, warm Thanksgiving on Thursday. And on Friday after Thanksgiving, I can't think of anything better than visiting one of Minnesota's spectacular state parks, with free admission, I will be visiting Temperance River State Park on the North Shore, but no matter where you are in Minnesota there is probably a state park within 30 miles.”
