Thanksgiving has arrived in the Delaware Valley! It's time for turkey, football games, parades, and family time. With the extra days off from work and school, there’s plenty of time to experience Philly fun found in our "stuffed" event calendar (see what we did there?).
Start off Thanksgiving break by venturing to the Parkway to watch the floats, hear the marching bands, and see the performers in this year's 6abc Thanksgiving Day Parade. If you are the athletic type or just want to burn off some calories before your family's feast, consider running in a turkey trot in the city or in the suburbs. Afterwards, sit down to a delicious turkey dinner with family and friends. Because, no sooner than the leftovers are put away, Philly kids know what time it is. The holidays are here!
Take the kids to a show such as Scrooge The Musical or Nutcracker 1776. Lace up your ice skates to take a spin on the ice at Blue Cross RiverRink or Rothman Orthopaedics Ice Rink at Dilworth Park. Watch the train displays at Longwood Gardens or Morris Arboretum. Or get a jumpstart on holiday shopping.
Happy Thanksgiving, Philadelphia, from the team at Mommy Poppins! Now, read on to see our top picks.
