On the day after Thanksgiving, do you really want to deal with the stress of the crowds, the long lines and rain checks, or would you rather give thanks for beautiful surroundings and reconnect with the environment?
The Southwest Times Record reports that Devil's Den State Park near West Fork in western Arkansas is offering an alternative to Black Friday: Green Friday.
Terry Elder is a park interpreter at Devil's Den. Elder says Devil's Den will host a day of hikes, nature crafts and family fun programming on Friday.
Guests will also be able to fish Lake Devil after the Arkansas Game & Fish Commission stocked the lake last week with 500 rainbow trout.
