Sure, you could go deal with crowded stores and search for deals on Friday (November 24th), or you could get outside and enjoy the beauty of Colorado… And do it for FREE!! 

Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s Fresh Air Friday is back for a ninth year. Entry to Colorado’s 42 state parks will be free. 

Visit the Colorado state park finder or use the free Colorado Trail Explorer mobile app to discover local parks, trail systems and open spaces. 

Visitors should be aware that Friday is a state holiday, and some park visitor centers may not be open or fully staffed. Enforcement personnel will be patrolling the parks, but some visitor services may be limited. 

Call the park visitor center in advance for hours, closures or other information.
