ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Black Friday isn’t just for fighting the crowds for the best deals, this year local parks are hoping New Mexicans opt to go outside.

New Mexico State Parks Public Relations Coordinator, Christina Cordova, joined KRQE’s This Morning team to discuss the #OptOutside event.
New Mexico State Parks is asking that visitors who experience the #OptOutside event to tag them and use hashtags #NMTrueParkFriday and REI’s # OptOutside when posting their outdoor pictures.
