4 things to do on Thanksgiving if you’re not into the big meal



The tables are set, the turkeys are thawed, and families are ready to give thanks.

But if you’re not into that kind of thing — or even if you are — here are four things you can do to shake it up this Thanksgiving.

1. Run or walk with Baptist Health South Florida’s Turkey Trot at Tropical Park in West Miami-Dade starting at 7:30 a.m.

2. Enjoy the North Miami Winternational Thanksgiving Day Parade at 10 a.m. starting at Northeast Sixth Avenue and running east along 125th Street to 12th Avenue.

3. Take a trip to the movies and catch up on November’s latest blockbusters. Regal and AMC theatres will be open Thursday.

4. Sawgrass Mills in Sunrise will open at 6 p.m. to help you get ahead on all your Black Friday desires.
