Spend some time outdoors on Black Friday

PRATT – Hiking, biking, or just relaxing and enjoying the fall weather at a Kansas state park is the perfect way to spend time with family over the holidays or decompress after an intense Black Friday shopping spree. REI, a Seattle-based outdoor recreation and sporting goods giant, is going to close on Black Friday and pay its 12,000 employees to spend the time outdoors. You can join this movement to spend time outdoors by visiting a Kansas state park on Black Friday or any other day, and while you may not get paid, you could win a pretty neat prize.

Anyone who visits a Kansas state park on Nov. 27 this year will have the opportunity to win a free night’s stay in a Kansas state park cabin. Simply post a picture of you or your family at one of the 26 Kansas state parks on Black Friday and post it to Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag: #myksstatepark. You’ll be automatically entered into a drawing for the free cabin stay.

Learn more about Kansas state parks at ksoutdoors.com/State-Parks. All state parks are open throughout the year, although water is available only at camping areas with frost-free hydrants during the winter.

Visiting a state park on Black Friday is really a win-win because even if you don’t draw a free cabin stay, you’ll spend time outdoors with family in a healthy activity.
