Upcoming Festival Thanksgiving Weekend!

Happy Thanksgiving, Festival Fans!


Hopefully all of you have either traveled safe and sound to your Thanksgiving destination and/or have prepared a stress-free holiday meal.Β  Maybe some of you have punched some new belt holes in preparation for the holiday feast!Β  I, myself, am hoping to stick to my diet through the holiday, but I’m not going to beat myself up too badly if I accidentally eat some pumpkin pie. πŸ™‚

This weekend, festivals are mostly coming in the forms of tree-lighting festivals or downtown holiday light events, all which have some sort of food, vendor market and entertainment (I’m sure there are many other events similar, but they are likely missing one of these three categories).

In terms of fairs and shows, there aren’t that many due to post-Thanksgiving shopping competition.Β  Don’t worry, though – they’ll be back next weekend!

In the meantime, I hope you find some great deals on Friday and support local business on Saturday!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and friends!

Love, Peace and Festival Grease!
