Green Friday

Black Friday has became an entire month rather than just the day after Thanksgiving. With most stores having sales all November long and the sales being accessible online the game has changed for Black Friday.

Back in 2015 a nationwide movement began. Rather than racing to stores folks took to hiking  and outdoor activities, changing the day from Black to Green Friday. Getting into the outdoors is thought to help with the seasonal depression many experience this time of year, and get people active after the feasts of thanksgiving. 

Many parks in Arkansas are holding events to encourage participation. Lake Dardanelle State Park is having come and go activities from 10 to 2. Getting your green Friday passport stamped gets participants a discount at the gift shop.

Lake Fort Smith will have an event at 10:00 am to show residents different pelts and discuss the furry animals around the area.

It’s also an option to just venture into the outdoors yourself. Lakes are still beautiful in the fall. Deer hunting also counts as participating in Green Friday, it’s in the outdoors!

Whatever way you spend the day after Thanksgiving- continuing being thankful, in the outdoors, shopping, or any other option there is we hope you have a great day!
