If you are looking for the most fun place to spend Thanksgiving, the answer to that question is Detroit. For decades, Thanksgiving in Detroit has been a big deal. There are plenty of festivities throughout the weekend to choose from.
- Thanksgiving Parade. Just like in years past, this parade will go down the historic Woodward Avenue on Thanksgiving Day (Nov. 23). If you are watching the parade live, it steps off at 8:50 a.m. If you watch it on TV, it starts at 10 a.m.
- Wild Lights. Starting the weekend of Nov. 18, you can head to the Detroit Zoo to see thousands and thousands of LED light displays throughout the zoo.
- Football. On Thanksgiving Day, you can watch your favorite football team in the 78th Thanksgiving Day Classic right here in Detroit. This is one of the longest-running Thanksgiving football traditions.
- Turkey Trot. Get some fun exercise before you stuff your face by running in the Turkey Trot in Detroit. Choose from a 10K, 5K, or a 1-mile walk. Many participants dress up in fun Thanksgiving-themed costumes.
