Did you know Saturday November 24th is called Small Business Saturday? Why? Well, the idea is to encourage and financially support small, local businesses during one of the busiest shopping weekends of the year. These businesses often get eclipsed by big box retail and e-commerce on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. So Saturday is a day to go local.

In honor of the day, we’re running our own special. When you check into Funderland Park on Facebook on November 24th, you’ll get two free tickets! So we hope you come out to the park, dodge a little of the mall chaos, and take a spin (or two or three…) on some of our fabulous rides.

And, not to be outdone by the “big boys,” we’re featuring a Black Friday Special too! When you come to the park on Friday November 23rd and purchase a 2013 Season Pass, you’ll get a free cup of hot chocolate topped with whipped cream and sprinkles!

Oh, FYI, our friends next door at Fairytale Town have a Black Friday special as well. They’re offering free admission on November 23rd to families who bring in a canned food item. For more information, click here.

And the Food & Toy Drive will be in full swing over at our other neighbors, the Sacramento Zoo. They’re giving $1 off on Zoo admission when you bring in a non-perishable food item or a new and unwrapped toy. More details here.

So a cornucopia of delights awaits you! Why not make a weekend of it? We hope you come on out and go local Thanksgiving weekend. And bring your family and friends!
