What better place to celebrate Thanksgiving with your family than San Diego? The beautiful city and mild weather make it a great place to enjoy being outside and being together for the holiday. Here's a look at some of the special events happening in the San Diego area.
Celebrations begin the Sunday before Thanksgiving with the Mother Goose Parade on Nov 19. There are bands, clowns, floats, equestrians, and other entertainment as the parade moves through El Cajon.
Start Thanksgiving Day in beautiful Balboa Park with Father Joe's Thanksgiving Day 5K run. You can feel good about sitting down to your own feast after finishing this event that raises money to feed the homeless. Or dress as a turkey to complete the Oceanside Turkey Trot.
