Thanksgiving Day Events In and Around Columbus

f3Thanksgiving is more than family and friends, food, and football. There are a growing number of family-centered events that now occur each year in and around the Columbus area. Here are a couple events that are our favorites and that we like to participate in.

Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot

The first is the Chase Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot, a 25-year old tradition for the whole family that is hosted by Whole Foods Market Upper Arlington at the Shops on Lane Avenue. The proceeds from the event benefit Easter Seals and the Make First Five Count Program.f1

Runners World Magazine even has selected this as the best Hometown Favorite Race. The race course takes the participants past many landmarks in and around Ohio State University.

There is a five-mile race and a 2.5 mile-“Walk N Talk” race. All finishers get a medal while the top finishers also get a fresh pumpkin pie from Whole Foods. All participants also get a swag bag with a shirt, goody bag, and ticket for a finish line snack and drink.

There is also an event for the kids called the McDonald’s Tot Trot, which is a 100-yard dash. Each child that participates in this free event gets a t-shirt, ribbon, and treat.f2

Thousands of participants join the races each year, and it’s a great way to work up a big appetite for that delicious meal later in the day while participants and volunteers can cheer on all the runners and walkers.

Thanksgiving Wattle

The other big event is the Thanksgiving Wattle in Grove City. This is the third time the morning 5K run has been hosted by the city and it grows each year in popularity and support.

Over 50% of the event profits and 100% of all donations goes through the charities that the run supports, including the Grove City Food Pantry, which serves nearly 8,500 people each year with food. Last year, the second Thanksgiving Wattle collected over 3,000 pounds of food and $4,500 in monetary contributions that went directly to the Grove City Food Pantry.f1

Each year, the amount of food and money grows, so we are looking forward to another great year of bringing the community together, having fun, and helping those local citizens in need.

Decorating Tips for Thanksgiving

There are many ways to decorate the home for Thanksgiving:f3

  • Add a welcoming wreath to the front door.

  • Participate in a new trend of tablescapes that create a floral display across the entire table.
