For many folks, today is the last day of the work week before an extended Thanksgiving weekend. After today, many of us will spend time with family, enjoy a good meal, watch the Macy"s Thanksgiving Day Parade and some football and just completely relax. This weekend should be a good one for some much needed R&R here in the hills, but it"ll also be a good one to get out and participate in some holiday kick-off activities. And there are a bunch of them! Here"s just a sampling of the festive events taking place in the communities around the region the next few days. Click on any one of them below for more details.
