Happy Thanksgiving! The Cheap Weekend Fun post is up a day early because I won’t be blogging or posting tomorrow and I hope you have a chance to plan your weekend a little early too!
If you are participating in Black Friday on 11/29/13, check out this post here for all the Black Friday hours just for Massachusetts. They are a little different than the rest of the nation due to blue laws.
Also, Meter Parking in Boston is actually free from Thursday, November 29, 2013 to Sunday, December 1, 2013 due to holiday parking and a city incentive, so please don’t pay any meters this weekend! Check back here on the blog Friday for more information!
Here’s some fun and affordable things to do for this extra long holiday weekend:
Half-Off Admission at Zoo New England: Friday, November 29, 2013 from 10am-4pm at Franklin Park Zoo and Stone Zoo. Forget Black Friday and enjoy a day with the family at the Zoo with half-price admission.
