It’s the weekend before Thanksgiving and the tree lighting ceremonies are about to begin!
We’ve started a list of all the upcoming Thanksgiving and Christmas events for you to enjoy this holiday season.
If you’re traveling for the Thanksgiving holiday, get ready to see a about 48.7 million people doing the same. Travel volume for the Thanksgiving holiday hasn’t been this high since 2007 with Austin-Bergstrom making the list of airports with the most delayed flights during Thanksgiving Holidays.
So whether you’re getting out of town or having family come to you, we wish you a safe and Happy Thanksgiving week! Enjoy football, turkey, green bean casserole, pumpkin pie, and — most important — time with the people you love.
Relax and enjoy your weekend before the craziness begins … or did it already?
