AMARILLO, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) — The Don Harrington Discovery Center and Wildcat Bluff Nature Center are getting in on those Black Friday deals, offering community members a $1 admission fee on Black Friday.
“It’s $1 for everyone who comes in the door,” Sophia Britto, DHDC’s marketing coordinator, said. “If you have a family of four it will be $4 that day. If you have a family of eight because you have family visiting from out of town, it’s only $8 for you that day.”
Officials detailed that on Black Friday the Discovery Center will be open from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., allowing families to experience Space Theater shows, live science demonstrations, and critter encounters. WBNC will also host its “After Gobble Wobble” at 2 p.m. on Friday, further offering $1 admission from sunup to sundown for families.
The Gobble Wobble will allow hikers the chance to join the Texas Master Naturalist for a guided hike on The Bluff’s trails while they learn about nature throughout the hike.
“It’s going to be great. If you are a member it’s already free admission, but we’re going to be doing some fun demos, and some activities, and of course, you get to explore our two awesome exhibits. Discover Through Time just opened up in September and Ocean Bound just came here in September as well,” she said. “So I highly recommend you come by for $1 admission either at the discovery center to explore and learn something new or you can hit up Wildcat Bluff and take a nice hike with the family. If you want to bring your family to show off the new exhibits, we totally recommend it.”
The Don Harrington Discovery Center will be closed today for the Thanksgiving holiday, but Britto encourages the community to come out tomorrow for DHDC and WBNC’s Black Friday deal.
