Ah, Thanksgiving is upon us, and we couldn’t be any more excited about it. There’s nothing like a good, old-fashioned, family-style dinner – Texas-sized, of course! Watching the parade together in the morning, smelling that turkey cooking throughout the day, and celebrating with family and friends over the afternoon… and don’t forget the pie, either! Here are just a few ways to celebrate Thanksgiving in Houston with your loved ones this year. Try not to eat too much!
Watch the H-E-B Thanksgiving Day Parade… in person! The largest Thanksgiving event in Houston takes place downtown, and the weather is slated to be perfect. So grab a few friends and family members, and be sure to arrive early to get a good spot. Bonus for sticking around to spot Santa!
Host a “friends-giving” feast! Who doesn’t love a good potluck turkey dinner?! Assign a few of your loved ones to bring the stuffing, the pumpkin pie, and the cranberry sauce, and host your Thanksgiving dinner feast comfortably at home in Alta City West.
Volunteer to feed others. Houston’s own Annual Thanksgiving Big Super Feast is one of the best events of the year to spread the joy and thankfulness to those who may not be feeling it this time of year. Tis the season to get involved with a charity.
Dine out with friends… When all else fails, West Houston’s got plenty of restaurants around our neighborhood here that are featuring dinner deals. Never fear! If you’ve burned that turkey, you can still have the chance to stuff your face!
How are you spending your Thanksgiving this year? Share photos of your plans and celebrations with us, and we may highlight them on a future blog or social media post. After all, we in Houston are famous for a community that feels like family… and that’s you, too! There’s no place like home on Thanksgiving. Gobble gobble!
