Thanksgiving is definitely fast approaching. And do you know where the best place to spend this joyous annual event? An excellent choice would be Miami. This is considered as one of the best places to celebrate Thanksgiving, whether it may be with friends or family. If you plan to do something more interesting, there are several options and opportunities here during the holidays. Here are some of the favorite Miami Thanksgiving events.

Baptist Health Turkey Trot

Join a race. The holidays will be better this year if you will join the Baptist Health Turkey Trot. It is presented by Publix, an event suitable for families and friends. Everyone is encouraged to join this run/walk during Thanksgiving. You can choose between the 10k, 5k and the kids’ races. And of course, after the race, there’s nothing better than sharing your blessings to the less fortunate. You can donate some food on the day of the race, and all these food donations will be given to those who do not have meals on Thanksgiving.

Here are the details to the said event.

  • Where: Tropical Park
  • When: Nov. 22, 2012 (Thursday); 5k and 10k starts at 7:30am while the Kids’ Trot starts at 9:00am
  • All participants will get a commemorative Turkey Trot tech t-shirt.
  • Registration Fee: 5k is $25, 10k is $30, and Kids’ Trot is $10

Share your Blessings

If running or joining a race is not your kind of thing, there are still plenty of ways to share your blessings. The true meaning of Thanksgiving is give time to those who are in need, reaching out to the less fortunate and the like. We’re quite sure that there are plenty of opportunities available.

The North Miami Winternational Thanksgiving Day

Thanksgiving is indeed a grand celebration not only in Miami, but for the rest of the world. Watching a parade can certainly help celebrate this day. The North Miami Winternational Thanksgiving Day parade will start at 10:00 am, which may include television and radio personalities. The parade is followed by the Jaycees’ Winternational Festival; there are lots of food, music and carnival rides to complete the celebration.

Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

Well, if you’re far from Miami, probably in New York, and you still want to enjoy Thanksgiving this year, better join the 86th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade that will begin at 9:00am on November 22, 2012. The route is quite new this year. The parade starts at 77th Street to Columbus Circle, along Central Park to 6th Avenue, to 34th Street and to Macy’s Herald Square. The designated public viewing areas are the following:

  • Central Park West: West side of the street, from 70th Street to Columbus Circle, and east side from 70th to 65th
  • Columbus Circle: west side of street
  • 6th Avenue: in between the 58th and 34th streets
  • 34th Street: south side of street, in between 7th Avenue and Broadway

Don’t forget to wear thick clothing, and perhaps it would be better to bring a hot cup of coffee or chocolate, the weather will be quite cold during this event.
