#OptOutside pm Black Friday - man hiking

#OptOutside on Black Friday!

How about ditching the madness of Black Friday shopping, and choosing instead to spend the day outdoors with friends and family? Sounds great, right? And it's an even sweeter deal because we’re waiving all park entry fees across The First State on Friday, November 29th, 2019 so you join us for a free day at one of our parks or the Brandywine Zoo!
