Half-price entry to Florida state parks for FSU and UCF fans

by: Harriet Sokmensuer Community Editor

The Florida Park Service has announced that University of Central Florida and Florida State University fans will receive half-price day admission to Florida State Parks throughout January. 

The discount is to celebrate the state colleges’ recent success at the BCS National Championship and the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl.

“FSU and UCF are winners, just like the state parks,” said Donald Forgione, Director of the Florida Park Service. “The players and coaches of Florida’s universities work hard and we are applaud their success.”

Admission to state parks will be half off Monday through Thursday during the month of January for anyone wearing FSU or UCF hats or shirts and students with current ID cards.

The Florida Park Service encourages fans to celebrate the victories of their favorite college teams, the Seminoles and Knights, outdoors with team-themed cookouts, a relaxing hike, picnic or stroll in a Florida state park.
