Thanksgiving Fun Around Boston!

Global Immersions Recruiting - Thursday, November 16, 2017


November marks the beginning of the holiday season, as friends and family flock home for the familiar comforts.The days may be getting shorter, but this doesn’t limit what’s happening around town. Thanksgiving is less than one week away and there is plenty to do before and during and after the holiday!

In anticipation of Thanksgiving, thousands of people flock to the site of the first Thanksgiving in American history: Plymouth. America's Hometown Thanksgiving in Plymouth is November 17-19.  The weekend of festivities has become a beloved holiday occasion as well as an important link to our nation’s history and heritage. The celebration of Thanksgiving becomes history-brought-to-life as Pilgrims, Native Americans, Soldiers, Patriots, and Pioneers proudly climb out of the history books and onto the streets of Plymouth. A historic parade, New England food festival, reenactments, patriotic concerts and more will take place.


Thanksgiving traditions vary from family to family. This could be gathering together to watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, the National Dog Show or “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving”. Watching football is another Thanksgiving tradition shared by many families. In addition to the various games being played by the NFL, local high school games are played on Thanksgiving Day, and there is no shortage of energy because usually these games are played against rival teams. Attending one of these games is a great way to feel involved in the community. 

For those who want to work off all of the calories before Thanksgiving dinner get out and run and/or walk on November 23 morning at the following Thanksgiving races: Franklin Park Turkey Trot 5KBrighton - Boston Volvo Village for MS 5K; SalemWild Turkey 5-Mile Run; Somerville Gobble Gobble Gobble

Thanksgiving weekend offers a variety of activities to get out and work off all of the Thanksgiving goodies! A return of the Boston Winter at City Hall Plaza on November 24 - December 31, 2017.  City Hall Plaza is turned into an ice skating rink and an outdoor shopping experience with 85 vendors offering a variety of local and international gifts and more! Head to Faneuil Hall on November 25th for the 32nd Annual Boston Tuba Christmas. An estimated 150-200 tuba players will entertain the crowd outdoors with favorite holiday classics. 

Make sure to also put on your calendar all of the tree lighting events around Boston coming in late November and early December.
