(PNJ.com) - To celebrate a winning season, Florida Park Systems is marking Florida State University's BCS National Championship win Monday against Auburn University and the University of Central Florida's Tostitos Fiesta Bowl win Jan. 1 against Baylor University by cutting admission in half for its fans Mondays through Thursdays this month. So fans wearing FSU and UCF hats or shirts and students showing a current school ID will get into a state park for half price.
The reduced admission rate is also in honor of the park system's third Gold Medal of Excellence award it received in the fall, said Donald Forgione, director of the park system.
"FSU and UCF are winners, just like the state parks," Forgione said. "It's only natural that the state parks cheer on these bowl wins along with fans. The players and coaches of Florida's universities work hard, and we applaud their success."
Half-priced admission is good at all state parks except for Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park, Weeki Wachee Springs State Park and Skyway Fishing Pier State Park. This offer does not include additional usage fees, special events or Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Jan. 20.
