Thanksgiving Events in Columbus Ohio 2013

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Vision Realty

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite times of the year and it's not always about the food, although the food is one of my favorite parts, but it's a time to reflect on what we are truly thankful for and in our country, we are more blessed than we realize. I'm thankful for my health, my family, my business, and all of the privileges and blessings I enjoy on a daily basis just being in this country. I truly hope you are with family and friends this Thanksgiving and can give things for the blessings in your own mind.Thankgiving in Columbus

Being in the Columbus area means there's lots going on around the city even on Thanksgiving day.

One of the biggest events is the Turkey trot which has been a family tradition in Columbus for over 25 years. This year it starts at Whole Foods market upper Arlington, and Whole Foods has agreed to offer freshly bakes pumpkin pies for the first 2100 finishers. All the proceeds and profits from this event will benefit Easter Seals and the Make the First Five Count program. There was over 7000 participants last year. There are two options; a 5 mile or 2.5 mile walk and talk for walkers only. All finishers receive a medal and a shirt. Even McDonald's is getting in on the action with a tot trot and 100 yard dash which is free for kids with a parent or guardian registration.

After you worked off the calories are going to put on you can certainly check out restaurants with a Thanksgiving menu. If you're letting someone else do the cooking there are several restaurants offering holiday fare such as Bel Lago in Westerville, Bucca di Beppo, the Columbus fish market in Grandview, Cooper’s Hawk Winery and Restaurant in Columbus and several others. Check out Open Table for more information on restaurants open on Thanksgiving Day and to reserve your table.

If you're staying home this year remember to hug your kids a little tighter, call someone that needs to hear your voice, and spend your day remembering how blessed this country truly ends. Happy Thanksgiving!
