DENVER (AP) - Colorado is trying to encourage a new Thanksgiving tradition by offering free admission to state parks on Black Friday.

The offer is good at all 42 state parks on what backers are calling Fresh Air Friday.

The director of the Colorado Outdoor Recreation Industry Office, Luis Benitez, says people have the choice between running around indoors or enjoying the great outdoors for free, and burning off calories from their turkey dinners.

Many of the parks are coated with fresh snow but people heading out in eastern Colorado, though, are facing temperatures only in the teens.

Other states are also offering free or reduced fees to encourage people to get outside.
