Shopping isn’t the only thing you can do in our community this coming Black Friday. Governor Andrew M. Cuomo just announced that New York State will be giving us another way to get some quality time in with the family just after Thanksgiving.

On Friday, November 24th, we can explore New York State Parks for free. Governor Cuomo said:

On Black Friday this year I urge New Yorkers to get outside and to take advantage of the world-class parks in every corner of this state…by offering free admission, we encourage families, nature-lovers and outdoor enthusiasts alike to enjoy the unparalleled natural beauty right in their backyards.

Governor Cuomo also expressed support of ‘Buy Nothing Day’ as well as the Thanksgiving Walk Offs that are happening at parks throughout the state  over the holiday weekend through November 27th. This is a great early holiday gift!
