Thanksgiving Festivities in Denver

v4We are getting ready for lots of fun for the whole family because it’s time for Thanksgiving.

From our family at our Denver flower shop and all the work that is going into getting ready for Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and the extended holiday shopping season to our own families outside of work as we prepare to gather and consider what we are thankful for.

We know all of you are running around, trying to get ready for a big Thanksgiving feast, so don’t forget to stop in, call us, or order online to get your Thanksgiving flowers.v4

However, during this time, don’t forget to make time for fun with the many events planned throughout Denver this Thanksgiving holiday.

One of the largest annual traditions is the 42nd Annual Mile High United Way Turkey Trot that offers fun for the whole family.

This is a four-mile run or walk that can be entered as an adult, youth, or senior.

There is also the quarter-mile family run or walk. Both events take place at beautiful Washington Park.Holiday Centerpiece

Beyond just having fun with the family and killing some of those extra calories that you will consume later in the day, participating in the Turkey Trot helps Mile High United Way build and support the local community.

The funds raised in entrance fees and donations can help this organization to improve childhood literacy, raise high school graduation rates, and provide economic self-sufficiency for adults and families.

Beyond just the race, there are many other activities planned for this event.v1

There is a Start Village with fun activities, music, coffee and food vendors. The Finish Village offers Great Divide Beer Garden for those 21 and over, DJs, booths and giveaways.

Come out and join us there for all the fun. Also be sure to visit us over the holidays! We’d love to help you with gifts and event planning for the holidays!
