As Central Massachusetts gets ready to celebrate Thanksgiving there is plenty to do for those who want to get out early. This weekend on Saturday November 2oth from 9am to 11am The Town of Grafton is holding it’s annual Great Turkey Treasure Hunt. In exchange for giving a donation of canned goods for the Grafton Food Bank’s Thanksgiving Food Drive you can enter the treasure hunt where you will receive “wonderful” prizes including that warm feeling in your heart when you do something nice! Thanksgiving can be hard especially when the economy is not doing as well as we would like, so all of us should be looking for opportunities to help those less fortunate where and when we can.
I always think of Sturbridge Village when it comes to Thanksgiving since they can put on such a realistic “show” of what the real Thanksgiving was supposed to be like. Last year when we wrote about it their famous Thanksgiving Dinner in the Bullard Tavern was sold out. As of this writing it doesn’t seem to be sold out yet so if you are interested call them soon. They also have a bunch of activities on the Thanksgiving Weekend.
If weather allows Wachusett will be making snow so that would be a great way of fitting in some exercise on ThanksGiving Weekend but the weather has been warm so keep up with their tweets to see if they can make snow. It is supposed to get colder ThanksGiving Week.
Another activity besides possible Christmas shopping that many will be taking part in is seeing the latest installment of Harry Potter . Of course you have to see it in 3D so I would check out the closest IMAX to Worcester at Natick’s Jordan’s Theatre. It will also be available in normal theatres as well.
Here is a preview to whet your appetite. Enjoy ThanksGiving and stay safe!
It’s enough to give you goosebumps…
